U.S. Army troops stationed at an Army base in South Korea celebrated the Thanksgiving holiday, complete with roast turkey and all the fixings, November 25, 2021.
Roast beef, lobster, mashed potatoes and stuffing were on the menu for the hundreds of soldiers at Camp Casey Thursday in Dongducheon, one of several U.S. Army bases near the Demilitarized Zone.
Higher-ranking Army officers dished out food to soldiers, who sat at tables with plastic dividers, a reminder that the holiday is still being observed amid a global pandemic.
The United States currently has around 28,500 troops stationed in South Korea. North Korea has long demanded their removal as one of the conditions for giving up its nuclear and missile programs.
