Here's a rather special one, the USS DAUNTLESS Patrol Gunboat 61 (PG-61)

 

Never heard of her? She was the controversial private yacht of Admiral Ernest King, commander in chief of the US Fleet and Chief of Naval Operations

Still afloat and fully restored to her 1921 configuration, she is now the Royal Yacht for the Principality of Monaco

I don't have a menu from this but I have a Thanksgiving memory from my time in service. I was lower enlisted and with the 4/7 Cav (we may still have been flagged as 5/17 at the time), the cavalry squadron of the 2ID in the western corridor in Korea. I pulled guard duty on the HHT motor pool that day. The CQ runner relieved me for dinner and I headed for the DFAC. Shortly after I sat down, a helicopter landed and the division commander (MG Tommy Franks) entered. I don't know if it was because I was eating alone or because I was the only one eating in uniform but he asked to sit with me.

 

I was almost finished and I knew the CQ would be irritated if I took too long but I couldn't just walk out on the General. I was gone from my post about an hour and fifteen minutes. As I was leaving the DFAC, the CQ came in looking for me. As the CQ started to chew me out, General Franks turned, shook my hand, thanked me for the conversation (we talked about football) and wished me a Happy Thanksgiving. The CQ's eyes got wide, he stammered out the greeting of the day to the General and let me go.

Here is the 1916 Thanksgiving Day menu for the 4th Cavalry, this particular menu gives the roster for G Troop of the 4th Cavalry. Appearing to be tissue paper it measures 14"x14" and has a rather ornate rose drawn/printed on it.
