Armored Division, Texas Army National Guard's Homecoming Party
After an historic peacekeeping
mission in the Balkans, The 49th Armored Division returns home to Texas.
Rudy Mikeska's Bar-B-Q was proud to be a sponsor for this event.

When the honor guard posted the colors, our son Timothy noticed the
soldiers saluting and returned their salute. (very touching moment....
for his mother and I)
Shawn and Rolando are preparing to cut Brisket and Sausage for the 1,500
hungry soldiers and their families.
Timothy and Candy are watching me serve Major General Fred Rees of the

It was an honor for my family and my company to help sponsor

accomplished and the sacrifice endured from their families and employers.
