THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) -

Veterans in Thomasville were treated to breakfast on Friday at the American Legion Post 31.

Members of Thomasville High School’s JROTC started the morning with a flag raising ceremony.

Then, veterans of all ages sat down for a breakfast prepared by the Knights of Columbus.

The breakfast consisted of ham, eggs, grits, toast, and biscuits and all of it was donated by Bob’s IGA and Flowers Baking Company.

Jimmy S. Taylor is a veteran who’s been attending the annual breakfast for 40 years now.

“It’s just wonderful. You know you look in there and see all colors you know just sitting there together and enjoying themselves,” Taylor said.

The annual breakfast is open to the public.

Taylor said he hopes to see more faces at next year’s event.
