Veteran’s Day Recipes: 8 Comfort Dishes Inspired by Soldiers’ Favorite Foods
While it probably doesn't rank with home and family, for service members stationed abroad, favorite foods properly prepared are sorely missed.

In honor of Veteran's Day, here are 8 delicious and comforting foods for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and dessert to make the veteran in your life even happier to be home.
