101st Sustainment Brigade - LifelinersFort Campbell KY, 101st Airborne DivisionBagram Airfield, Afghanistan – A little home cooking went a long way for service members stationed at Bagram Air Field recently as they were treated to the taste of down-home Cajun cuisine and live entertainment.

A team of chefs and entertainers from Houston teamed up for “Operation H.O.T.” (Honoring Our Troops), serving spicy cuisine from the Texas-Louisiana border to feed and entertain the service members stationed at BAF.

Show promoter and creator, Charles Carroll, said the group’s intent was simple: entertain the finest troops in the world with some of the best talent in the world while bringing them a taste of home with a Cajun meal.
