Houston VA Hospital Cook-Off

Houston, Texas

Updated: 11/11/2010 Thank you to Barbara Corbett for sending us the information about the Rolling Thunder and allowing us to make corrections to the article.

This year was the 10th Annual Houston VA BBQ Cook-off and the 2nd year that CMC has donated the use of their big generators for the participating cooking teams. The cook-off is hosted by Rolling Thunder Inc., Texas Chapter 2.  To learn more about the Rolling Thunder and what they stand for you can visit their website here.

The Patriot Guard Riders were also present at the cookoff. The PGR is present at most all veteran’s funerals and they have send-offs for the troops, as well as welcome home ceremonies. The American Legion Post #490 is a very large part of the cook-off as well. Last year the cook-off fed over 800 patients at the local VA Hospital.

This year was our first year to join in the festivities and have team enter.  It was truly an amazing experience. They are a great group of people and we are so proud to have been invited.  CMC has a standing invitation after this year to participate in the cook-off and they are very grateful to CMC Construction Services for the use of the generators.

    I’d like to make two corrections – 1. Rolling Thunder is NOT a motorcycle group although many of us do ride motorcycles and 2. Rolling Thunder is not part of the Patriot Guard Riders. If you would like to know more about Rolling Thunder feel free to check out the National website at http://www.rollingthunder1.com/

    Thank you,
