A recent University of Minnesota study finds about one in four military members, who served in the Iraq and Afghanistan wars, have a tougher time than the public when it comes to access of enough food.

It is especially a problem for the youngest veterans.

Dr. Rachel Widome, Assistant Professor with the U of M School of Public Health, stopped by KSTP to talk more about the research.
