About the Book

Fifty percent of all author royalties from sales of The American Veterans Cookbook: A Collection of Recipes from Veterans and Their Families will be donated directly to the Armed Forces Veterans Homes Foundation, located in Suitland, MD. While the authors believe this organization is worthy of our support, we are not associated with it in any way whatsoever. This Foundation is a non-profit, non governmental organization that operates exclusively for charitable purposes and solely for the public welfare. The organization solicits, receives, manages and disburses financial resources by means of grants and awards to agencies nation wide that serve the needs of elderly and infirm veterans of America's armed forces.

If sales of this recipe collection go well, we plan to produce new editions in the future to continue our fund raising efforts for programs and projects that benefit American Veterans and their families. We appreciate very much your contribution to this worthy goal on behalf of our nation's veterans who have sacrificed so much to ensure our American way of life. Some have sacrificed life or limb(s), others their professional careers and schooling; still others have sacrificed their physical and/or mental health. We as a nation have an obligation to this special segment of our population that absolutely must be expressed in heartfelt ways and actions. Please join us in doing just that.
