A special thank you

On the fourth Saturday of every month, a group of U.S. veterans gets together at Shoney’s for breakfast. Our last one was Aug. 28. This is a vet to vet gathering to try to help our fellow veterans.

On this day, there were 14 in attendance. We had opening prayer, did the Pledge of Allegiance, then we had a moment to honor the 13 veterans who lost their lives in Afghanistan, one at a time.

After some time, the waitress brought our checks and placed them on our tables. About 5 to 10 minutes later, she came back to inform us that our checks had been paid.

Who ever it was, we can never thank you enough for this great act of kindness. Thank you so very much for honoring our veterans in this way. May God richly bless you and your family, and may God bless America.
