FORT STEWART, Ga. (AP) -- The military has awarded Fort Stewart for serving up the best Army chow in the region.
A ceremony at the southeast Georgia Army post Friday will present the Army award for best dining facility in the Atlantic region to the cooks for Fort Stewart's 4th Brigade Combat Team. The dining hall beat out competitors at Fort Bragg, N.C., and Fort Drum, N.Y.
The regional honor advances the Fort Stewart dining hall to the Army-wide competition. Other contenders include soldier-cooks from Fort Carson, Colo., and Army posts in Hawaii, Germany and South Korea.
Fort Stewart's cooks will be judged in an inspection later this month. The contest evaluates them for appearance, proper food preparation and sanitation.
