I would just like to say that This gesture of thanks from all these bussineses is humbling. We as the veterans do feel very honered to be remembred this way. I recived phone calls from people I know just to say thanks for my service. I have never felt so welcomed home. this is not how we were welcomed back from Viet nam. thank you all so much, It fills a big empty hole in my heart. I am proud to have served my country , One humble Vet. 101st Airborne Rangers. Sam B. Ruckersville

Chick-fil-A Woodbrook gave free meals to veterans and all active military on Monday form 11-8. They also gave away Chick-fil-A for a year to one lucky veteran.

Sam Bowen's facebook page states his birthday is 9/20/1955. That makes him 17 at the end of the Vietnam War (August 15, 1973) so there is no way he is a Vietnam Vet. Misrepresenting yourself as a Vietnam Vet is very disrespectful to those who actually have to live with the scars.
