On this West Virginia Morning, we'll hear about what's being done in the Ohio Valley to fight food insecurity among veterans. Napoleon famously said that an army marches on its stomach; troops must be fed in order to fight. But what happens when that army fights hunger back home?

Tens of thousands of U.S. military veterans struggle with homelessness and hunger. As the holidays approach, a pilot program in the Ohio Valley aims to serve those who served their country. The Ohio Valley ReSource's Nicole Erwin reports.

Also this morning, we hear the next episode of our occasional series, Window's into Health Care – where we hear from health experts around the state – health reporter Kara Lofton sits down with Department of Health and Human Resources Cabinet Secretary Bill Crouch to talk about his work and what he feels are the biggest health issues facing the state.
