ARKANSAS CITY, Kan. – Last weekend, more than 5,000 soldiers and family members stationed at Fort Bliss, Texas enjoyed a complimentary steak dinner courtesy of Creekstone Farms Premium Beef, in partnership with the All-American Beef Battalion. AABB is a beef industry coalition that supports service members and their families through "steak feeds" held on military bases throughout the US.
The event, which was held Feb. 12, featured sports competitions, live music and prizes before ending with a special dinner featuring Creekstone Farms Premium Black Angus steaks.
"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."
