Mission BBQ serves up some pretty darn good barbecue but they also proudly serve those who serve our country and strive every day to remind everyone what makes our country great- its heroes. Each of their restaurants is covered with memorabilia of our service men and women, and every day at noon the entire restaurant stops to sing the national anthem. True patriotism at its finest.
We have been blessed to have become close friends with co-owner Bill Kraus and many of his staff members as they have opened their doors in new locations across Maryland and around the country.
We were blown away when they asked to feature Val in the first video of their series, “If These Walls Could Talk: Stories of Service” about a year ago, and we have continued to be blown away by the special memories we’ve shared with them since. Here are two examples of recent moments:

You can also get a tasting of their food at our upcoming September fundraising event at the Women’s Memorial at Arlington National Cemetery on Saturday 9/10 from 3-6pm where we will be featuring a female NASA astronaut as our keynote speakers and enjoying an amazing bbq reception. Here are the details and we hope to see you there! wingsforvalfoundation2.eventbrite.com
