Leadership Howard County hosted its salute to Veterans luncheon last week with Mission BBQ. The guest speaker was Bill Krauss, co-founder of the restaurant.
Every day at noon, the national anthem is played in each of the stores. Veterans from World War II eat for free. Memorabilia is displayed in each of the stores from veterans who live in that restaurant’s area.
Mission BBQ is proud of its relationships with the military, and with our first responders. They were in Baltimore City feeding the police department as they continue to search for the coward who murdered Detective Sean Suiter last week. They fed first responders in Ellicott City when the floods hit on July 30. Internationally, they have fed our troops overseas, and continue to do so on a regular basis.
When asked about those who choose to dishonor our flag, Mr. Krauss indicated that Mission BBQ is not for them.
In addition to their wonderful mission to serve our military and first responders, they have great food. We have several in our area, including Columbia at Snowden River, and Ellicott City on Route 40 west. Enjoy their good food, and their patriotism and great service.
