 “Soldiers, Cookies & the Crumbs”

The Story of Treat the Troops

by Jeanette Cram


“Send cookies and letters,” wrote a young soldier to his mother, never realizing that President George H. W. Bush would read his letter in a televised speech on September 11, 1990. That one sentence inspired Jeanette Cram to begin baking cookies for deployed soldiers. Soldiers, Cookies & the Crumbs tells the story of Treat the Troops, which, begun by Jeanette, now includes hundreds of volunteers, known as the Crumbs. Together they have sent nearly three million home-baked cookies to servicemen and -women around the world, and the baking continues. Proceeds from the book will go to support Treat the Troops.”
