How do our food stories change during wartime? Each episode follows a veteran or wartime volunteer from their home in the United States through their overseas deployment and back again. We hear firsthand where they fought, who they fed, how they ate, and what tastes they missed most while away at war. From World War II through today, soldiers and civilians come together at the table to remember, reflect, and show respect. Hosted by Jacqueline Raposo.

Excellent Excellent Excellent!!!

I love history AND WWII history. I used to sit with my neighbor and listen to his stories about WWII when I was little and was fascinated. This series is wonderful! So many great stories. I also enjoy the format. I binge listened in 2 nights. ❤️
