Minnesota National Guard Troop Visit – Blog Entry No. 13

Posted by Ryan Cardinal on December 13, 2009 – 9:48 am

Vikings Entertainment Network’s Bryan Harper and KFAN’s Mike Morris, the former Vikings longsnapper and current host of “The Power Trip Morning Show,” will be traveling to Iraq to visit Minnesota National Guard Troops over the next week or so.  Both men will be updating fans via the Blog on their trip about the experience.

Below is the duo’s 13th entry, sent via BlackBerry from Kuwait.

Morris / Harper:  The Serving Our Troops Steak Dinner held here in Basra and with National Guard families at Roy Wilkins auditorium was awesome. We have been with their group since we got here and were able to help grill and serve Mancini steaks. Some of the soldiers were able to eat 2-3 steaks each… most selected temperature was medium rare followed closely by rare. The meat here is boiled and is always way overdone. The smells were great, Brian Leighton of GB Leighton played great music and many said it was the most fun they have had since they have been here… and they all said it was the best meal since they have been here. Nice to see the smiles. Lots of credit goes to the Serving Our Troops group from St. Paul – they headed out of base this morning. Safe travels to you Pat, Ted, Joe, JB, Dave, Johnny, Pete, Dan and anyone else I may have forgotten.
