The Base Chapel is sponsoring the 16th Annual "Home Away From Home" Thanksgiving dinner program for our Non-prior Service (NPS) Airmen. This base tradition brings together families from the Keesler community (Active Duty, Retired and Civil Service) and NPS Airmen on Thanksgiving Day.

Host families volunteer to provide a "Home Away From Home" experience for two or more airmen by inviting them to their homes and providing a Thanksgiving meal. Host families can be anyone who has access to base services.

The airmen benefit by experiencing genuine warmth and hospitality while hosts benefit by getting to know some of the Air Force's brightest and best. This is a wonderful way to enjoy Thanksgiving Day as the extended Air Force/Military family!

Host sign-up forms are available now and must be turned in at the Fishbowl (Levitow Training Support Facility) or Triangle Chapel by Nov. 19.
