LEE CO., GA (WALB) -

Albany area Chick-fil-A restaurants also honored troops still listed as Missing in Action by setting an empty white table called the "Missing Man Table."
    

Employees at the Lee County location say they plan to do this every year.

"Well it's something that has been done throughout Chick-fil-A at other locations before and it's something we felt very passionate about and something we wanted to adopt just to honor those who have fallen in combat,” said Steven Mainor, Leesburg Chick-fil-A General Manager.

The two Chick-fil-A locations in Albany also honored MIA troops with the same setup.
