So yep, I'm truly thankful this year for the warm home (it sucks having to keep my thermostat at 60 degrees because I can't afford to heat in our late Fall and through the winter here, lol) at least for a couple of hours, the good conversations (don't get anyone visiting 58 year old, grey-bearded veteran and biker), and especially all the wonderful home cooked food. They had ham *and* turkey, all the trimmin's, and three different kinds of desert. I honestly can't remember a Thanksgiving in the past 19 years since I've been disabled and poor as dirt that was as nice, so yes, Thanksgiving was exactly that this year. I hope it was just as great for everyone else!
Did you get disabled due to something Uncle Sam wanted/demanded you to do?

What relevance does this have to a thread regarding Thanksgiving?

No one, but I have given to @Richard Cranium a suggestion about where an American veteran could have been wounded 19 years ago...

That's all.

Regardless of this being a good or bad guess, please let FTIO answer (or not) to a question that was addressed to him.
