FORT CARSON, Colo. — A full meal compete with dessert and music.
More than 800 people shared a Thanksgiving meal together at Fort Carson’s annual Thanksgiving meal and culinary competition.

“Trying to brighten their spirit since they’re not there with their families,” said Sfc. Francis J Orcutt with the U.S. Army.

“There’s the ham, there’s the turkey, there’s,” said Spc. Francisco Silva, who’s been at Fort Carson for two years now.

Each soldier worked on a project with a team for one of the six dining facilities on post.

“They work on shift, they put out the meal for the day, and then they would come over and help the team after their meal,” Orcutt said.
