If you are a veteran or active military regardless of what branch of the military you served or are serving in, at one point or other you will have eaten SOS. I was just going through my American Legion magazines before I pack them up to give to our church, since the 6th graders of West Valley Christian School are collecting magazines for a nearby nursing home and lo and behold I found the following recipe which I cut in half for you folks, and instead of lard use butter. Warning those on a low cholestrol and low sodium diet should refrain from eating it.
