Today’s Star Spangled Salute honors Navy Veteran Jeff Howard. Jeff was a member of the Navy Combat Engineering Battalions, known as the SeaBees. After 8 years of service and several tours in Iraq and Afghanistan, Jeff returned home. He brought with him anger issues and PTSD. So, he tackled his challenges head on and found relaxation and relief from the anger and PTSD through baking. It started with baking his wife’s favorite dessert, cheesecake. After perfecting the recipe, and taking requests from neighbors, business grew. Jeff now sells a lot of cheesecake under the name American Cheesecakes though the shops on Facebook with 20 percent of the proceeds going back to Veterans and their family members, and he delivers free of charge. Thank you for giving back Jeff and THANK YOU for your service.
