Christmas Menu 1942 – Company I


Twelve Days of TOG Christmas #7

The United States had entered World War II just a year earlier, and mobilization altered the way the nation operated day-to-day. Families were separated and good-byes were said. Some were spending their first Christmas away from family. The men of the Old Guard were now in Newfoundland, protecting against the possibility of a Trans-Atlantic attack. Here in this 1942 menu, then men of Company I hoped a familiar meal and camaraderie could help Soldiers forget what may lie ahead.
