On Monday, President Biden served meals to military families at Fort Bragg in North Carolina to celebrate the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday.
Around 250 military personnel and families were greeted in a giant hangar filled with pumpkin centerpieces. Jill Biden was the first to speak and talk to families.
The first lady spoke about their late son, Beau, who served in the Delaware National Guard. She talked about how she understood the uneasiness and hardships of having your child away for the holidays. She then remarked how proud she was of the troops before introducing the President.
“You do so much, your families do so much,” President Biden said. “You’re the finest military the world has ever seen … and I’m so damn proud to be associated with you.”
After a prayer from the chaplain, the Bidens proceeded behind the serving tables. They wore gloves and aprons and handed out the troops’ dinner. Jill Biden was in charge of the mashed potatoes, while the President was in charge of the stuffing.
Before resuming their family tradition of celebrating Thanksgiving on the Massachusetts island of Nantucket, the Bidens plan to participate in a to-be-announced local service project.
Last year, Biden put tradition on hold due to COVID-19 concerns and settled down in Delaware with just his wife, their daughter, and their son-in-law.
