Meds & Food for Kids – soybean for nutrition

A cooperative grant effort between the National Soybean Research Lab based in Champaign, Illinois, the United States Department of Agriculture, and a Haiti based Not-for-Profit called Meds & Food for Kids is working to fight malnutrition in the Caribbean nation while at the same creating economic prosperity. Todd Gleason files this report from the north end of the island.

We believe these live pigs were being carried to market strapped to the back of a motorcycle.

Honor Flight May 21, 2013

Tuesday, as some of you may already know, I flew to Washington, D.C. with my father on an Honor Flight. It is a most moving experience. Dad is a WWII vet and among only a handful on this trip. Most were Korean Era vets. You can see photos taken during the day using the link below. If you are or know a WWII or Korea era vet and can travel (at all) please do not miss this opportunity. Honor Fights are extraordinary events. 

Over this Memorial Day as we remember the fallen, please take time to thank those that served along side them. Freedom comes at a price, and a few have paid with their lives, many have paid with their service. We thank all of them. 

Todd Gleason, Guardian - Central Illinois Honor Flight
