Albany-- Many south Georgia veterans' chests swelled with pride Monday, as their waistlines swelled a little too, thanks to a free meal.
Every year around Veterans Day, Golden Corral honors active duty and retired military with an appreciation night just for them. A night that includes a free meal.
And Golden Corral showed that appreciation in a very tasty way. "We have barbeque chicken. We have turkey. We have ham," says manager Cheri Brown.
And with all that good food, the buffet line is certainly long as military veterans fill up on a free, hot meal, but they all say it's worth the wait.
"We're helping ourselves, getting fat!" says one vet.
This is the restaurant's way of saying "thank you" to all of our troops who served our country proudly. "It's an honor for the Golden Corral to do this," says Eugene Sims.
Eugene Sims served more than 20 years in the navy. Being surrounded by fellow vets bring back many memories. "The camaraderie is still there, the friendship," says Sims
"They support each other. It's a good feeling to see them all come together," says Navy Veteran Paul Shaner.
Shaner appreciates the good food prepared for all the veterans, but says it's important to remember those currently serving in the military. "It's a very stressful time for them, and we appreciate what they've done."
And so are all veterans here, even Sims. "We wish that they all remain safe, and they come home safe."
And maybe next year, those troops currently fighting for our nation will be among the vets who participated Monday.
