DynCorp International team members from the Logistics Civil Augmentation Program (LOGCAP) in Afghanistan helped the troops celebrate Memorial Day, commemorating the holiday with special meals for troops overseas. The Food Services team prepared and served traditional meals and specially decorated cakes to show their thanks to military personnel for their service.
In addition to regular menu items, dining facilities enhanced their Memorial Day menus with items such as roast turkey with all the trimmings, seasoned grilled rib eye steak, Cajun rice, candied yams, corn-on-the-cob, barbecued Polish sausage, homemade corn bread and gumbo.
“There’s nothing we’re more proud of than to have the opportunity to serve our men and women in uniform during their time here and to go the extra mile on occasions such as Memorial Day to show them that DynCorp International cares a great deal for them,” said Preston Slayton, DynCorp International dining facility manager.
