Happy Thanksgiving, EUCOM!

Thanksgiving Day is a unique American holiday and custom. Traditionally, the Pilgrims in 1621 celebrated a day of thanksgiving with local Native Americans for the bountiful harvest that nature provided to them during their first year in the New World.

Throughout America’s history, this day has evolved into the celebration and customs that we enjoy today, which for most Americans means gathering together with family and friends.

We would like to wish all Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen, Marines, Coast Guardsmen and the civilians of the European Command and their families a wonderful Thanksgiving.
