"It's nice to be appreciated, at least that one day a year," says Alex Ritschel who served in the Air Force. "Sometimes, it seems like a lot of people forget, and it's just nice to be remembered."
This coming Monday is "all-you-can-eat" buffet for veterans at Golden Corral. The restaurant is having a "thank you" dinner for vets, retired and serving, from 5:00 - 9:00 pm.
