A special family was created for Thanksgiving dinner at a local fire station.
Las Vegas Fire and Rescue Station 1 wanted to make sure that those who sacrifice for the rest of us on a daily basis, weren't left alone on this occasion.
They invited Nellis airmen, other firefighters and Metro officers, anyone who didn't have a place to go or family to be with.
It gave a warmth to a day that could have been lonely for some.
"All the guys treated me really awesome, and all treated me like family," airman James Miller said.
"No uniforms required. We wanted them to come here and get a hot meal. Firefighters are notoriously good cooks. We have so much food, We could probably feed the homeless shelter down the street at this point," Mark Saragosa with Las Vegas Fire and Rescue said.
Many in this instant family know all too well what it is like to be away from home at the holidays.
