February 25, 2011
More than 5,000 soldiers and family members stationed at Fort Bliss, TX, enjoyed a complimentary steak dinner this weekend, courtesy of Creekstone Farms Premium Beef, in partnership with the All-American Beef Battalion (AABB), a beef industry coalition that supports service members and their families through “steak feeds” held on military bases across the country.
The celebratory event, held on Saturday, Feb. 12, offered a fun-filled agenda of sports competitions, live music and prizes before culminating in a special dinner featuring delicious, high-quality premium Angus steaks from the Kansas beef producer.
“On behalf of the 700 employees at Creekstone Farms, we wanted to express our sincere appreciation for the men and women who serve in our Armed Forces,” said Jim Rogers, vice president of marketing for Creekstone Farms. “This small gesture was the least we could do to honor the sacrifices these soldiers, along with their families, make every day for our country.”
