Assign each line of a text file to a variable

I have what should hopefully be a very simple scenario.

I have a batch file which relies on a text file to retrieve a set of values, line by line. Each line represents a server name. To illustrate, let's say the servers are listed as follows:

WebServer 1
AppServer 2
DatabaseServer 3

For each server name listed in the text file, the batch script should assign it to a unique variable and then perform some other process (e.g. deploy some files), as required for that particular server.

I believe the For Loop will be best suited for this particular requirement and would be extremely grateful if anyone could assist.

Thank you.
