Woodrow Wilson Birthplace Museum - Staunton, VA

Friday June 6, 2014 (9:00AM - 5:00PM)


The traditional American doughnut has an important place in the history of the armed forces.   During World War I, the Salvation Army sent women to France to lift the spirits of the soldiers – and to serve them comfort food.  Their food of choice?  Hot donuts. The women became known as “Doughnut Girls,” and the soldiers, “doughboys.”  Join us Friday, June 6th at the Smith House on the grounds of the Presidential Library and celebrate the contribution of these Salvation Army Girls and enjoy some homemade doughnuts.
