November 11, 2009, U.S. – Veterans in five U.S. cities will be getting a hot and cheesy care package this Veteran's Day, courtesy of America's dairy farmers in partnership with Pizzas 4 Patriots.

Pizzas 4 Patriots is a non-profit organization that aims to deliver "a slice of home" to U.S. service men and women both domestically and abroad.
 
The patients of Veterans Administration hospitals in Washington, Chicago, Dallas, San Antonio and Green Bay will receive a visit from local dairy farmers today, along with a delivery of pizza and milk.
 
"Dairy farmers have a long-standing tradition of supporting our local communities, so we are pleased and honoured to join the nation in celebrating the service and sacrifice of America's veterans," said Ken Miller, a Sulphur Springs, Texas-based dairy producer and U.S. veteran who will be among those serving milk and some 800 slices of Domino's pizza to veterans at the Dallas VA Medical Center. "We are proud to show admiration and appreciation for veterans in a way that is closely connected to what we do as dairy farmers – producing great milk and milk products."
