Operation Thanksgiving

Airmen from Sheppard Air Force Base can look forward to getting a home-cooked family meal for Thanksgiving this year.

Operation Thanksgiving is an annual tradition in Texoma where families invite Sheppard Air Force Base airmen into their homes for a Thanksgiving meal.

The event is organized by the base Chaplain Corps, and they encourage families to volunteer to take in Airmen from the base to join them for their Thanksgiving dinner.

Then, at 9 a.m. on Thanksgiving morning on November 27th, the host families gather at Solid Rock Café at Sheppard to pick up the airmen, where they will enjoy a Thanksgiving dinner at a home away from home.

To sign up to as a host family, call (940) 676-0014.
