Many thanks to Bill Van Eck of the 'Proud Americans'
(2/32 Arty) for sharing this 1965 Thanksgiving menu.
Below are the contents:
merciful God, accept our thanks this day for all thy blessings. We come to thee on
this national day of Thanksgiving to join with heart and voice all the people of our
blessed land to praise and thank thee. Thou hast provided us with all that we need
to sustain body and life. As our redeemer thou hast given us spiritual blessing
beyond measure. Thou hast richly blessed our nation from its beginning with freedom
and liberty. Help us to go beyond words in our thanksgiving that we may give
evidence in deeds to the world that we are willing to share all that we are and all that
we have with those who would walk with us. Receive our prayer of thanksgiving, we
pray, O God, our creator and redeemer. AMEN.
Thanksgiving Day we find ourselves in a foreign land assisting in the defense of the
rights of free men everywhere. On this day we should offer our grateful thanks for
the abundant life which we and our loved ones have been provided. May we each pray
for His continued blessings and guidance upon our endeavors to assist the Vietnamese
people in their struggle to attain an everlasting peace within a free society.
