On this Thanksgiving eve, we'll hear from veterans remembering some Thanksgiving moments while deployed. Hear about having dinner in Saddam Hussein's former palace and procuring live turkeys with the help of Peshmerga guards. Plus, how China's Communist Party perceives the impeachment proceedings in Washington. Also, Germany's far-right party — Alternative for Germany — is targeting the country's theaters, art and cultural institutions.
