St. Paul to Iraq & Kuwait December 12th, 2009

Serving Our Troops completed its 7th project on Saturday, December 12th with "Saint Paul to Iraq & Kuwait."

Set in Camp Buehring, Kuwait, Basra, Iraq and the Roy Wilkins Auditorium in Saint Paul, an international steak meal was served to more than 8,000 Minnesota National Guard soldiers overseas and their family members back home.  With the entire project linked via live international video, it was a meal with the family...just before the holidays.

12-ounce steaks were shipped overseas and grilled in person at both camps by 20 members of the Serving Our Troops team.  Back home in Saint Paul, with the support of numerous event sponsors and more than 300 volunteers from across Minnesota, family members and friends were treated to a first class steak lunch with all the trimmings complete with cold beverages from Coca-Cola and the August Schell's Brewery, and fresh baked cookies from Sweet Martha's Cookie Jar.
