Military families celebrate Thanksgiving early

Date Created: 11/10/2010

Although Thanksgiving may be a few weeks away, military families in South Carolina celebrated the feast early in honor of their loved ones who are serving overseas.

The Rolling Thunder and Family Readiness Group organized the dinner for the families of the 54 men and women serving in the 151st National Guard Battalion that left in July for a tour of duty in Iraq, according to

"It's nice to be together with family, and keep traditions going while they're still deployed," Jessica Thomas, whose husband is overseas, told the news source.

The two groups that organized the event are now preparing to hold a Christmas party in December.

With the turkey day only weeks away, many are beginning to put the finishing touches on their Thanksgiving party.

Start picking up your Thanksgiving party supplies such as table cloths and party tableware. You'll also want to make sure that you have imprinted napkins on hand that have pictures of leaves and other festive fall items on them.

Fall centerpieces such as cornucopia and bowls of fruit will add a touch of color to your table setting.
