On Veterans Day, I was at a retirement luncheon at Hometown Buffet in Independence, along with other persons who had retired from this company. The function was held in the private room.
About halfway through lunch two ladies entered the room and were going from table to table inquiring whether people sitting there were military veterans and what branch they had been in. When one of the ladies stopped at my table and asked if I was a veteran, I told her I had been in the Army. She handed me an envelope that said “Honored Army Veteran.” Inside the card said, “Dear Friend, we will be forever grateful for your courageous service and countless sacrifices. God bless you.”
They had signed their first names on the card. I hope I don’t embarrass them by repeating their names, but I want people to know about their very kind and thoughtful gesture. Someone asked them if they represented a special group and they said no, that they were doing this on their own.
They had also put a ten-dollar bill in each card. They passed out about 10 cards in the room.
Thank you and God bless you, Evelyn and Marcia.
