Dee Denison, left, of the VFW Post 3278 Ladies Auxiliary, was among dozens of local volunteers who served dinner Friday night to more than 600 troops from the 949th Brigade Support Battalion of Fort Worth. Here, Zaragosa Ramirez of Killeen gets a sample of homemade banana pudding. The event was hosted by the post and its auxiliary. After training at the Camp Bowie National Guard facility here for several months, they are scheduled to move out to Fort Stewart, Ga., for additional training. Denison said the response from the community for desserts was “outstanding.” Photo by Gene Deason
