A short break from the Daily Thanksgiving wordless images to recognize Veterans Day, and give thanks to all the veterans out there. That deserves words.
Dick's was acknowledging its founder's heritage, and expressing thanks to veterans, by giving free hamburgers to current & former military personnel.
I drove away with tears in my eyes, and with my hamburger.
Perhaps not so much in appreciation for being appreciated, or for the free burger, as in having once again had the experience of showing my ID card and getting food in return.
There are times when I think highly of food.
Some of the most compelling of those times I have been in uniform, or at least carrying that very ID card, or one very much like it.
Thank you Dick's.
