It is said the average doughboy actually gained weight as he entered the service. Perhaps this Thanksgiving menu for the 70th U.S. Infantry at Camp Funston (Fort Riley) proves the point.
There doesn’t seem to be too many additions to items we would consider part of the traditional Thanksgiving dinner. Needless to say, it would appear their dinner was quite plentiful.
The prayer or blessing on the second page still seems appropriate: “Lord God of Host, / Be With Us Yet / Lest we Forget / Lest we Forget.”
