Thanksgiving Dinner Aboard USS Idaho- 1936,1937, and 1945

We recently received several items from a veteran of the battleships USS Idaho (BB-42) and Alabama (BB-60). Two of the items were Thanksgiving Day menus from 1936 and 1937. Click to enlarge any of the images.

When the war ended, Idaho came to Norfolk Naval Shipyard one last time for a post-war inspection before she headed into mothballs. This 1945 Thanksgiving Day menu comes courtesy of the USS Idaho Memorial Website.
