Barbara Proffitt made 111 pecan pies over the weekend.
Of those, 103 went to members of the 233rd Transportation Company, which returned Sunday to Fort Knox. Seven went to rear detachment members who helped the soldiers.
One tipped onto the floor as Proffitt, community relations coordinator at Hardin Memorial Hospital, baked the treats in her kitchen in assembly-line fashion. It allowed her to sample one of the pies that otherwise would have gone to a returning soldier.
