Calgary, AB – Canadian Cattlemen’s Association (CCA) representatives are on hand at the Steaks for Soldiers event at CFB Valcartier today, where nearly 4,000 Canadian Triple A, well-aged strip loins will be served to the troops and their families.
Sponsor a Steak for a Returning Soldier campaign organizer Harvey Dann is also at the event, the largest of the four Steaks for Soldiers events held in appreciation of Canadian troops since 2007. Representatives from Canada Beef Inc. and the Fédération des producteurs de bovins du Québec will join Dann and the CCA in assisting CFB Valcartier personnel in the preparation and serving of the steak.
CFB Valcartier is home to the largest Canadian regiment involved in the Canadian operation in Afghanistan. Nearly twice as many steaks will be served here than at each of the previous events.
