3rd and 5th Space Companies are two of the three reserve companies in the 1st Space Battalion. Their mission is Army Space Support. Each company is organized into five ARSST teams, and each ARSST team consists of 6-9 officers, NCO’s, and Soldiers with backgrounds in intel, IT, GIS, comms, and much more. Rather than deploying as a unit, they certify and deploy as teams in support of various space, satellite, and missile defense missions around the world and The All American Beef Battalion had the honor of serving up some juicy “Thank You’s” at their Christmas Party.
The Yellow Ribbon Reintegration Program (YRRP) is a Department of Defense wide effort to promote the well-being of National Guard and Reserve members, their families and communities, by connecting them with resources throughout the deployment cycle. Through Yellow Ribbon events, service members and loved ones connect with local resources before, during, and after deployments. Reintegration during post-deployment is a critical time for members of the National Guard and Reserve, as they often live far from military installations and other members of their units. Commanders and leaders play a critical role in assuring that Reserve service members and their families attend Yellow Ribbon events where they can access information on health care, education and training opportunities, financial, and legal benefits. YRRP works with both government and non-government partners, including the Small Business Administration, Department of Labor and Veterans Affairs, to provide up-to-date and relevant information to the members of the all-volunteer force and their families. The work YRRP does for our service personnel is greatly appreciated and The All American Beef Battalion had the honor of supporting their event for the 169th Field Artillery Brigade held October 29, 2016 at New Life Community Church in Aurora, CO. It was great day of food, fun and fellowship. For additional information, please visit The Yellow Ribbon Reintegration Program.
The 302nd Airlift Wing, one of nine Air Force Reserve C-130 wings with an airdrop and airlift mission located throughout the nation and the only Air Force Reserve C-130 wing assigned the special Modular Airborne Fire Fighting System (MAFFS) mission, is one of the largest tenant organizations at Peterson Air Force Base, Colorado.
Their mission is to provide superior global reach. The primary operational mission of the 302nd AW is tactical airlift and airdrop. The wing also has the specialized mission of aerial firefighting employing the U.S. Forest Service’s Modular Airborne Fire Fighting Systems (MAFFS), as well as an aeromedical evacuation mission.
While their mission is superior global reach, our mission was to serve 2000+ as our way of saying Thank You for your service and sacrifice for our country during their annual family day.
The Battle at Boxwood is an annual event that serves as both a fishing tournament and a fundraiser for Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing, Inc and the veterans we serve. The 6th Annual Battle at Boxwood will take place on July 16, 2016 in Shawnee, Colorado at Boxwood Gulch Ranch.
This annual event is a 1 day competition comprising 10 four-man teams (each including a professional guide, sponsor, sports or entertainment celebrity, and two PHWFF veteran participants). Thanks to the generosity of the Mauritz family and Boxwood Gulch, the event takes place on a private section of the South Platte River — a beautiful, restorative, fish-filled environment. Opportunities for rainbow, brown, cutthroat, cutbow, and brook trout are abundant, with trout averaging 16” – 22” on the 3 mile stretch of water offered by Boxwood Gulch Ranch. The top 3 teams are determined by the teams total length of trout landed.
We’re also honored that The All-American Beef Battalion will once again be providing an outstanding lunch to the volunteers and veterans in attendance.
They are a group of individuals involved in the U.S. Beef Cattle Industry who work to support our service members and their families, both past and present. They organized and sponsor steak feeds, entertainment, meeting, and project with Service Members and their families and to foster among the citizens of the United States an appreciation, respect and honor for our Military Service Members whose sacrifices have, and will continue to make our freedoms possible.

HAWGSMOKE is a biennial worldwide A-10 bombing, missile, and tactical gunnery competition. Hosted by the winners of the previous competition, HAWGSMOKE is an intense competition and an opportunity to share in the camaraderie and fellowship of the world’s premier Close Air Support fighter, as well as legacy of its pilots and support crews. The All American Beef Battalion was honored to serve as this year’s awards banquet dinner sponsor. We also had the pleasure of spectating as our A-10 pilots exhibited their skills at the Barry Goldwater Air Force Range just a few miles away for the United States-Mexico border. The only thing hotter than the weather in the Old Pueblo was the HAWGSMOKE competition!
