Ramstein leadership meet with the Rheinland Inn Dining Facility staff before Airmen eat during a Thanksgiving meal at Ramstein Air Base, Germany, Nov. 24, 2016. Every year at Ramstein, leadership across the Kaiserslautern Military Community visits the base’s dining facility to cook food and meet Airmen during Thanksgiving.

Since then, the holiday has been celebrated by an entire nation to recount the blessings of the year. (U.S. Air Force photo by Airman 1st Class Lane T.
