Turkey for the troops

What will you be doing for Thanksgiving? Gov. Dirk Kempthorne will be serving up turkey to Idaho National Guard troops in Louisiana, where they’re preparing to begin deploying to Iraq the day after the holiday.

To give the troops a proper send-off, Kempthorne also has arranged for famed Idaho band Paul Revere and the Raiders to come to Louisiana and play a concert for the guard members, along with vocalist Nancy Roche.
