"Send cookies and letters," wrote a young soldier to his mother, never realizing that President George H. W. Bush would read his letter in a televised speech on September 11, 1990. That one sentence inspired Jeanette Cram to begin baking cookies for deployed soldiers. Soldiers, Cookies & the Crumbs tells the story of Treat the Troops, which, begun by Jeanette, now includes hundreds of volunteers, known as the Crumbs. Together they have sent nearly three million home-baked cookies to servicemen and -women around the world, and the baking continues. Proceeds from the book will go to support Treat the Troops.

Jeanette Cram is a native of Charleston, South Carolina, and a retired registered nurse. A graduate of the former St. Francis Xavier School of Nursing in 1962, she worked at the Medical University of South Carolina, Department of Psychiatry, for a number of years during her nursing career. She also started a volunteer program there, serving from 1972 to 1980, before moving to New Jersey. Since responding in 1990 to a soldier’s letter requesting home-baked cookies, she has become known as The Cookie Lady. Her passion for sending home-baked cookies to deployed soldiers developed into a cause that has attracted hundreds of dedicated bakers, known as the Crumbs, across the nation. This is Jeanette’s first book. She and her husband, Jack, live on Hilton Head Island, South Carolina, with their two cats, Wally and Sady.
