Albany - - Even though Veterans Day was Sunday, many commemorations were held Monday, including an annual gift for Vets from a restaurant chain.
Lines were long at the Golden Corral. Each year, the restaurant offers a free meal for veterans on their special day.
Vets brought their families and took advantage of the tasty offer. Despite the wait, they say they really appreciate what the restaurant is doing for them.
"I think its wonderful because it seems a lot of the Vets are forgotten it seems like sometimes," Alvin Blair says.
"It's great that somebody would look after us old vets," says Jack Daughtry.
All 485 Golden Corrals across the country offered the free meals. They've been doing this for seven years.
