Updated:

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP/KTTC) -- Canadian Honker staff will be busy at Ft. McCoy in Wisconsin Sunday, preparing and serving thousands of steaks to Minnesota National Guard soldiers and their families.

The event is sponsored by "Serving Our Troops," which is a St. Paul-based civic organization led by business leaders, elected officials and restaurant owners.

The group is serving meals to 2,400 soldiers of the Minnesota National Guard's 1st Brigade Combat Team and their families.

The Minnesota soldiers are nearing the end of their training at Fort McCoy and preparing to depart for a one-year deployment to Iraq and Kuwait.

Governor Dayton will also be on hand to serve steaks, greet soldiers and their families and make brief remarks at the event.

This is the fourth time the Canadian Honker has been involved in the event.
