Serving up success

Almost every Sunday morning, a group of dedicated soldiers from Task Force Cash, the aviation asset that supports Multinational Battle Group East in Kosovo, transforms one of the hangars at Camp Bondsteel into a waffle house for the enjoyment of the troops. First Lt. Jeff Hodish, a Black Hawk pilot with A. Company, 2/149th Lift Company out of Eastover, S.C., pours batter into a hot waffle iron in the makeshift kitchen. He says that while some days it is harder to get up and serve customers on his only day off, it's still a nice feeling to volunteer. "There is the whole satisfaction of helping someone else out," he said. "It is a good feeling to volunteer." The donations the soldiers collect in exchange for the waffles go into a fund that helps pay for, and prepare local high school students for the Test of English as a Foreign Language. Nearly 8,500 colleges and universities in more than 130 countries accept the results from the TOEFL exam when going through the admissions process. For these students, this test means the opportunity to attend an English speaking school outside of Kosovo. (U.S. Army photo by Sgt. Angela Parady, 121st Public Affairs Detachment.)
