FORT HOOD, Texas — To promote esprit de corps with Soldiers, Family members and guests, Fort Hood will celebrate its annual Thanksgiving holiday meal competition Nov. 24 at five of its dining facilities here.

Lt. Gen. Pat White, III Corps commanding general, along with senior leaders and personnel with the 407th Army Field Support Brigade Installation Food Service Team will judge the traditional Thanksgiving meal to recognize dining facilities for their outstanding performance in support of the traditional holiday meal.

To win the title, the dining facilities will be judged on display and dining area appearance, food service operations and food service personnel.

Additionally, Families and Retirees are invited to purchase a Thanksgiving meal at any of the dining facilities Nov. 27.

Media interested in attending the competition should register here. On Nov. 24 media should meet public affairs representatives at 11 a.m. in the southside parking lot of the Marvin Leath Visitor Center for an escort to a dining facility.
