Tell Me Your Story: Veterans' canteen-style eatery a World War II tribute

September 18, 2011

NORTH KINGSTOWN – All that’s missing at the Quonset Hut Diner is the sound of “Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy” filling the air.
Otherwise, it is a virtual trip back to a World War II USO-style canteen, with low-cost comfort food cooked up in a 2009 Custom Kitchen trailer by an actual veteran.
Laurie Ludwig, 55 and a native of Staten Island, N.Y., served in the U.S. Air Force after earning a degree in education from Wayne College.
“I wanted to teach,” she explains, “but several thousand teachers were laid off that year.”
