Work Vessels for Vets & Semper Fi & America’s Fund Join Forces to Equip SSG Steve Rossler, an Injured Texas Veteran and his Top-Rated Barbecue Business.
MAY 2, 2023, Ft Hood area, TEXAS - Today, thanks to a gift of a state-of-the-art smoker from two veteran-serving charities, Army SSG Steve Rossler and his wife Kristen new business, Rossler’s Blue Cord Barbecue are taking their successful business to a new level to meet the great demand for their food in the Fort Hood, Texas region. Work Vessels for Vets, an all-volunteer nonprofit with the mission to equip America’s injured veterans with the tools they need to start a business, and The Semper Fi & America’s Fund pooled their resources to purchase the $14,000 top-rated smoker mounted on a trailer.
Kristen, Paisley, Julianne and I cannot express how grateful we are for both organizations for doing this for us. Sitting on top of a mountain in Wardak Afghanistan, I never would’ve even imagined that my duty to America would ever be rewarded like this,“ says SSG Rossler. “With this second Moberg Smoker, we can double our capacity, going up to 40 briskets and not worry about selling out.”
