Soldiers’ 4th of July Steaks

Take a look at how some of our country’s finest celebrated their 4th of July last year.

Hint:  It involves steaks.

Kunduz, Afghanistan, is not where I’d want to be to celebrate our country’s birthday. But these soldiers do what has to be done.

EXACTLY what this country is all about.

Hope you enjoyed those steaks, soldiers!

Steak Team Mission

So, remember that video I posted of the soldiers preparing Christmas steaks?

Well, here’s an organization whose mission is to bring those steaks to soldiers. I had no idea. The day after I posted that video I read about these guys in the newspaper. Serendipitous. Whudda thunk it?

Steak Team Mission, you had me at “steak.” What a concept!

Here’s how they describe what they do:

Steak Team Mission prepares and serves steak dinners to soldiers in harms way to remote and hazardous areas determined by date and location by the US Military.

Now this is a cause I can get behind!

You can read more about their mission at SteakTeamMission.org and you can even donate there.

Truly, this is America at its best!
