Most of U.S. troops in Afghanistan will celebrate Thanksgiving with a traditional turkey dinner with all the trimmings.

“Other than that, it will be operations as usual,” said Lt. Col. David Simons, spokesman for the International Security Assistance Force.

Col. Simons tells Inside the Ring that some troops will have access to a satellite broadcast of the NFL game between the Baltimore Ravens and Pittsburgh Steelers.

Marine Gen. Joseph Dunford, the ISAF commander, had no message for the troops, but the general will be serving food at some Afghan outposts.
