- Story Text: U.S. soldiers on a NATO base in Kabul were given a special Thanksgiving dinner on Thursday (November 24) as millions of Americans celebrated their annual holiday feast.
One soldier serving away from home said he wished his family a happy Thanksgiving.
"I am safe and well I wish all my family members a happy Thanksgiving, and happy holidays, I will see them soon," Captain Tuan Vu said.
The North Atlantic Treaty Organisation has shifted most of its military responsibilities onto Afghanistan's armed forces since it ended its main combat mission in 2014.
