All Fort Lee service members, Department of the Army civilians, military retirees, and their family and guests are invited to the special Thanksgiving meal that will be offered by each of the four dining facilities on post.

In addition to turkey and the traditional sides, as well as an impressive assortment of desserts, the food service facilities will feature decorative displays and command-group visitors from each of the major military organizations on post – some of whom will be serving part of the meal.

Meal service times for military units and guests have been arranged in time increments to promote a more casual dining atmosphere for all participants. Those paying for meals also can decrease waiting times by bringing exact change.
