The name of the cookbook is “Made in the USA” and it is dedicated to Kevin Kammerdiener, a soldier who was injured in Afghanistan May 31, 2008., and many other soldiers who have served or are serving our United States. The recipe book contains a wide variety of 350 recipes and is a very lovely gift for yourself or a loved one.
I just got my copy this week and it has bunches of yummy recipes from all over the country.

I have been following the blog Mended Wings for quite awhile now. It is written by Leslie Kammerdiener, mother of Kevin Kammerdiener, a soldier who was injured in Afghanistan last year. Kevin is currently a patient at the James A. Haley VA Hospital being treated for Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI), sustained when his vehicle was hit by an IED. I have to say, the most recent posts by his Mom are very disturbing. The treatment he is receiving is very substandard, from what I am reading.
This is disgraceful. How can we let our injured military members be treated like this? Go and read the blog and see what you think. I think something needs to be done and soon. Let your representatives in government know about this and demand that Kevin and all the other like him get the help they need. Let’s hope it doesn’t come to late. Kevin’s Mom, Leslie has requested that we do not take action on Kevin’s behalf. She feels that press attention will be detrimental to his treatment. I have to concur and feel I was to hasty in demanding action. After all, Kevin is her son and she is the one who has the say in his care. So, by all means, visit the blog, leave a message of support, or drop them a card of encouragement, but leave it to Leslie to haul out the big guns if she needs them.
