Hometown Heroes on the Food Network!

During this busy holiday weekend, be sure to catch
The show is a tribute to the men and women in our Armed Forces who have sacrificed their time and in some cases their lives to preserve our freedom.
It aired once on Saturday, but you can see it again on Monday, July 4, 2011 at 6PM.
The final segment of the show is a tribute to Spc. Christopher Barton who was killed in action on May 24, 2010. Chris was a friend to all my children. They have felt his loss deeply.
In memoriam, Chris' family established a scholarship fund. His mother and some mothers of other soldiers decided to publish a cookbook, Hometown Heroes, with all proceeds going to the scholarship. I don't know the whole story, but someone told the Food Network about the cookbook. They decided to include Chris' story in a special with Sunny Anderson and you can watch the moving results on Monday, July 4 at 6PM.
