The saddest truth in politics is that people get the leaders they deserve

Cooking with the Troops gets to honor a ‘Band of Brothers’ legend

Written By: Bob - Nov• 23•11

This is really neat:

I imagine that few who read this will not know the name Richard D. “Dick” Winters. While the movie Band of Brothers made him famous, he was already well known within the military community for his outstanding leadership. His accomplishments make him an excellent exemplar for all the outstanding leadership shown on D-Day and beyond by those who led men in combat, which is the basis for the Richard D. Winters Leadership Project of the WWII Foundation.

As part of this effort, a statue of Dick Winters is being dedicated on 6 June 2012 in Sainte-Marie-du-Mont, Normandy, with a reception afterwards at the Utah Beach Museum. It is an honor and a pleasure to tell you that Cooking with the Troops will be providing the refreshments at the reception. Our goal is not just to provide tasty and appropriate food and drink to those attending, but to involve as many veterans-to-chefs and troops/vets interested in culinary/hospitality careers as possible.

Cooking with the Troops is a 501(c)(3) charity that supports U.S. and Allied troops, their families, and caregivers around the world, and is currently in a national sponsorship drive. This Thanksgiving holiday, please consider sharing some of your blessing with this worthy cause.
