Fort Hood celebrates Thanksgiving with a holiday meal contest



FORT HOOD, Texas (KWTX) – Friends and relatives of the soldiers at Fort Hood gathered in dining halls on Tuesday to celebrate Thanksgiving.

To promote esprit de corps with units and soldiers across the facility, Fort Hood hosted its annual Thanksgiving Meal Competition.

Hundreds of Army culinary specialists from several Fort Hood restaurants fought for food supremacy and the title of best serving restaurant.

“Countless hours spent at 92G making sure everything was dressed properly,” said CFS John Cunningham.

The chefs spent hours preparing their eight dining rooms to serve the annual Thanksgiving meal to soldiers and their families.

“They have a creative mind and make sure that their creative mind really comes to life,” Cunningham said.

In a spirit of gratitude, senior unit leaders on duty served the enlisted soldiers to show their appreciation for the hard work of service members working to defend our nation.

“It’s amazing. I feel like they really put people first, and that’s really good. I like to see that it shows that they really care who cares? you can tell like all the people who are serving right now. And I mean, they are happy there. They can say that they are really doing something good for the soldiers, “said Sgt Marquis Sanders of the 68th Engineer Construction Company.

After all the food had been served, the Blackjack Dining Facility was the winner of this year’s contest.
