FORT BRAGG, N.C. (AP) - If an army marches on its stomach, it also likes a holiday feast when it’s back in the barracks.

Fort Bragg is geared up Wednesday so serve thousands of Thanksgiving dinners to soldiers and their families away from their families on the holiday. Nearly 8,000 Thanksgiving meals were prepared last year.

Twelve of the sprawling Army post’s dining halls are serving traditional Thanksgiving meals Wednesday and Thursday.

Fort Bragg’s Thanksgiving meals mean cooks are preparing 2,500 pounds of whole turkeys, 2,400 pounds of prime rib beef, 2,600 pounds of smoked ham, 1,400 pounds of shrimp and 3,000 pies.
