    Fort Sill soldiers had quite the Thanksgiving feast today. It was all served by the commanding general and other post leaders. On the menu were prime rib, turkey, ham, and all the Thanksgiving fixings along with shrimp gumbo. It took a couple of weeks to prepare the food. The decorations took a little longer after settling on a Disney theme. We spoke with Wilson Shoffner, the commanding general at Fort Sill, about why it was the leaders serving the soldiers.
