The World Association of Chefs has named Master Sergeant Mark Morgan of the
U.S. Army Rangers as one of the three best pastry chefs in the world, as reported in the local newspaper
of Fort Monroe, Virginia, where Morgan is based. He earned the
distinction at the recent Culinary World Cup in Luxembourg, where he
represented the U.S. culinary team and won two gold medals.
Morgan has also been honored in his day job
as an Army Ranger. At some point during his six tours of duty--two in
Iraq and four in Afghanistan--he was awarded the bronze star. He is
currently the aide to General Martin Dempsey, who runs the Army Training
and Doctrine Command, also known as TRADOC, at Fort Monroe.
