Giving Thanks: Jackson leaders serve holiday meals

By Emily Hileman, Fort Jackson Public Affairs

Warrior restaurants around Fort Jackson were a sight to behold Nov. 22-23 as leaders from each unit served the Soldiers hearty meals for Thanksgiving.
“It’s a time-honored Army tradition where leaders come out and serve Soldiers to model servant leadership,” said Col. Mark Huhtanen, Fort Jackson deputy commanding officer. “People are so far away from home and we’re showing them that we care and that the Army is one big Family.”
Soldiers were greeted with themed decorations that varied at each facility as well as dining options they’ve never seen before in Initial Entry Training. Menu items ranged from more eccentric options such as shrimp cocktail and barbecue ribs to the more traditional Thanksgiving foods like turkey, macaroni and cheese and dressing.
“I’m most excited about having real food today,” said Pfc. Addison Smith, a native of Somerset, Ohio, who’s celebrating a bittersweet first Thanksgiving away from home.
