FORT DRUM, N.Y. (WWNY) - Thanksgiving on Fort Drum was a chance to serve a holiday meal to soldiers, but it was also a competition.

The 1st, 2nd, Combat Aviation, and Sustainment brigades were all vying for the Commander’s Cup, by decorating their dining facilities. The best theme brought home the gold.
