The carrier George Washington had a special holiday surprise this year courtesy of North Korea. While the Navy says the carrier was scheduled to participate in exercises with Japan, the plan changed in the wake of North Korea’s bombardment of the South Korean island of Yeonpyeong.

Do you think they’ll be impressed?

But despite the less than ideal Thanksgiving circumstances, the culinary specialists tried their best to make it homey. Check out the spread!
