Taste of Home for The Troops

Troops from North Dakota and Minnesota who are serving in Iraq are getting a taste of home.

A Veterans of Foreign Wars Post in Fargo is sending hundreds of pounds of venison jerky to them. The program is called "jerky worth fighting for." The meat for the jerky is donated by hunters.

The commander of VFW post number 762 says more than 1,000 pounds of jerky and venison sticks have been shipped to more than 40 soldiers from the two states.
