For the third year in a row, my retired Navy fiancé and I (an Army veteran) enjoyed the wonderful Veteran’s Day free meal that Applebee’s so graciously offers all Armed Forces vets and active duty personnel.
The meal was delicious, the atmosphere was crowded with old and young military people — some in their uniforms, dressed from camouflage fatigues to full dress mess uniforms complete with bow tie. It was great to hear all the military people reminiscing about their military service, about friends sadly lost, about friends gratefully reunited.
Thanks to Applebee’s for its continued salute to the men and women, past, present and future, of the United States armed forces. God bless America.
