Golden Corral

Again this year, on Monday, November 15th, Golden Corral will be extending an invitation to all veterans to come to their restaurants for a dinner on them in thanks for their service to this nation and to the world.

I attended this event last year with my father, a veteran of the occupation force in Italy, the Korean conflict, and a 20 year retiree of the Air Force, and my husband, a Vietnam era vet who served in a trip-line unit in Germany during the Cold war. I can tell you from personal experience, it is a wonderful outreach by this restraurant chain and it gave many vets of many conflicts an opportunity to sit together and celebrate their service, remember those who did not come home, and acknowledge each other.

Even if you are not a Vet, I encourage you to go that night and be warmed by the comraderie and patriotism you will see there. And if you are a Vet, take the family and let them see and talk to your fellows over a great meal.

My hat's off to you, Golden Corral, for providing a much appreciated Thank You to our Veterans.

Thanks for this great post.

You couldn't find a more un-stereotypically-military family than ours, but my father and I both saw wartime combat. Dad much more so than myself, he was in the Pacific in WWII ... artillery. I saw action in 1990-91 with the Marines in Desert Storm.

I'm always amazed at how little the civilian world understands, or wants to know, about military life and what it's all about. Thanks for sharing the stories of your husband and your father. You, too, as a military family member, are making a greater contribution than you will ever know.

God bless all veterans who served for my/our freedom. That about covers it.

Please convey to the Delftsman and the other vets in your family my wishes for a very happy Veteran's Day! Thank them for their service from me.
