Southern Ute Veteran Rod Grove, pictured alongside other men from his company in South Vietnam, 1970. The troops were treated to a Thanksgiving meal and refreshments provided to help the troops celebrate the American Holiday and boost moral. It was a good day, remembers Mr. Grove, who said everyone was in high spirits, it was a quiet day around the compound and everyone had a chance to relax and enjoy the occasion. That is something to be thankful for.
