Retirees Like Free Stuff

Just got back from the local Golden Corral restaurant, which gives free meals to veterans each year on the Monday after Veteran's Day. The parking lot was completely full, so we ended up parking across the street. There were about 100 people waiting outside when we got there, and 100 more when we left. (They did bring out cookies and coffee for the people waiting.) One TV station sent out a camera crew -- DeepDiver maneuvered himself to get in range of the shot with a well-timed trip to the dessert bar. Had a great time seeing all the veterans from the Boise area (didn't see any easily identifiable submariners, though). Saw one guy with the "WWII/Korea/Vietnam" hat... there's someone who's seen it all.

Going deep...

Golden Corral doesn't just feed RETIREES! Lots of us "folk" who did a lot less time get to eat free too! While "hubby" and I drove around looking to buy an old house - we ended up eating some mexican "stuff" and forgot about the FREE meal opportunity! Dang!

Yes, it was for all veterans... and active duty, as well. There were some guys (and gals) there from the 116th BCT who'd just gotten back from Iraq there tonight.
