As he particularly mentioned Memorial Day, and the importance of remembering the men and women who died while serving in the United States’ armed forces, here’s a story about soldiers and donuts, courtesy of NPR. If you feel particularly inspired by the story, you can support NPR here, and the American Red Cross here.
The story starts when Russ Roberts, a George Mason University economist, started hearing about how veterans don't like the Red Cross. That struck him as odd, and when he asked about it, he always got the same answer: the doughnuts.
