Suitland, Maryland (PRWEB) June 18, 2014
Andrews Federal Credit Union in partnership with the Steak Team Mission provided approximately 600 Texas-style BBQ steak meals with all the trimmings to D-Day vets and their accompanying family members in commemoration of the 70th Anniversary of the D-Day landing in Normandy, France on June 5.
Since 2002 the Steak Team has served over 50,000 steaks to service members all over the globe to include on three aircraft carriers out at sea.
The venue for the lunch/dinner was Château Bernaville in Picauville which is also the home of the Allied Conservatory Foundation. The Château served as the headquarters for German General Wilhelm Falley, commanding general for the German defense of the Cotentin Peninsula and also the place where he was ambushed and killed by troops from the 82nd Airborne Division.
Several dignitaries, including the Secretary of the Army John McHugh, Army Chief of Staff General Raymond T. Odierno, NATO Supreme Allied Commander General Philip M. Breedlove, USAREUR Commanding General Lt. Gen. Donald M. Campbell Jr, 82nd Airborne Division Commander Maj. Gen. John Nicholson, West Point Commandant of Cadets Brigadier Gen. Richard D. Clarke, and several other general officers were in attendance.
