  • Fort Lauderdale, FL (1888PressRelease) June 06, 2014 - The Forbes Living TV show has discovered that National Donut Day was last Sunday, June 1st. But this is not just another novelty dedication of a day like hundreds of others. The origin of National Donut Day is to be found in the trenches of World War I. During the war, Salvation Army officers toured the battlefronts and offered the soldiers donuts that they made in a makeshift kitchen just behind the front lines. In light of the frustrating stalemate of trench warfare, these donuts were no doubt a welcome respite. This is not, however, how American soldiers in World War I got the nickname "doughboys". That moniker dates back to the Spanish-American War of the early 1800s.
