Veterans Breakfast

HyVee grocery chain here in Kansas City served the Veterans and their families a wonderful breakfast on Friday.  They were predicted 9,000 people served.

I accompanied by hubby and his friend and got some fabulous pictures.  The local police department presented the Colors and they all felt so honored. Many tears were shed.

Local high school and elementary students were servers. HyVee gave each one a huge selection of any breakfast item they wanted. It was so special.

There were red and blue balloons, streamers and flags to decorate every inch.

Every branch and conflict was represented.

I saw this gentlemen and had to know more about him. He is 96 years old and was in WWII, he was in the US Navy as a Corpsman in the Marshall Islands. He went in in 1945, the same year my Dad did. My Dad would have been around his age this year but we lost him to cancer 25 years ago.

Three good friends-left to right John (Army) Hubby (Air Force) and Charles (Navy).

A day to remember for sure.

Linking with BLUE MONDAY
