Do you love to cook? Maybe you just like to eat. More importantly, do you care about the sacrifices of our service people and their families who have given their all for our country?

Then check out "A SALUTE TO STEAK". All proceeds from this $10 cookbook (sponsored by Weber Grills) will go to the following four charities that benefit Marines wounded or killed in the line of duty and/or their families.

Injured Marine Semper Fi Fund, Wounded Warrior Project, Fisher House (a "home away from home" for families of patients receiving medical care at major military and VA medical centers), and Marine Corps-Law Enforcement Foundation (assistance is primarily rendered to children of Marines or Federal law enforcement personnel who were killed on duty or died under extraordinary circumstances while serving our country at home or abroad) are all organizations that do wonderful things and deserve all the support we can give them. All that and you get a great cookbook, too!

Here's the official website (check out the video while you're there!) and you can buy it locally at Ace Hardware, Airgas Gaspro, Aqua Quip, Do It Best, G.I. Joes, The Andersons, and True Value. Where else can your $10 do so much?

Regardless of how you feel about this senseless war, these people deserve our support. They've served our country to the best of their ability and now both the injured Marines and their families are paying the price. Buy the book. The proceeds might even help someone that you know and love. Besides, it's the right thing to do. Good Karma will come your way, I promise!

Check out the following links, several of them have sample recipes to try.
