My husband has spent many a Thanksgiving underwater.
Being a submariner, duty doesn’t stop for holidays. So he’s deployed for so many turkey days – eating government issued stuffing and cranberry sauce with his fellow shipmates – that I often lose count.
Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday; I love food, and I love my family.
I have a series of rather sad photos, commemorating our Thanksgivings, most of which he is missing in.
And, sure, it’s sad.
