Military personnel and their families were treated to a free holiday meal Thursday evening at Naval Air Station-Corpus Christi.

Active duty, reservists, veterans, and their dependents were served a Thanksgiving meal by volunteers. The volunteers said the meal was served as a way to show their appreciation and to give thanks to those who put their lives on the line for our freedom.

Turkey, ham, green bean casserole and yams were just some of the goodies on the menu.

This year's meal was provided by the United Corpus Christi Chamber of Commerce.
