For the sixth consecutive year Texas Roadhouse of Rib Mountain presented gift cards to the Wausau American Legion Post 10. These cards are made possible through a program of Texas Roadhouse and the generosity of their patrons. With this gift card program the Post is able to expand its assistance to Veterans in need.
Throughout 2021, previous cards have enabled us to provide needy service members and their families a meal. The Post 10 Service Officer oversees the distribution to those in need. With uncertainty of travel and health concerns, these gift cards and your “meals to go” program provide an opportunity for Veterans to call ahead for meals without concerns of endangering their wellbeing.
Additionally, on special occasions the Post has provided our Honor Guard with gift cards after they have presided at more than one military funeral rite on the same day.
On behalf of the Post 10 members and all Veterans, we salute you!
