The Breakfast Brigade
Reveille was 0600 this morning when members of the Anderson Veterans Society of all races, creeds, and sexual orientations began boarding buses for the Third Annual Veterans Day Grub Crawl at Ohio Second District Congressman “Bronze Star Brad” Wenstrup’s Office, located at 7954 PFC James Miller IV and Staff Sergeant Richard T. Pummill Memorial Highway (aka Beechmont Avenue), so Anderson Veterans could visit every one of the 487 area restaurants in Anderson and the surrounding tri-state areas offering Free Food for Veterans on Veterans Day 2016.
First stop was for Breakfast with some Navy Veterans at Bob Evans (Hotcakes, brioche French toast, and the country biscuit breakfast), then swapping war stories with the Army Infantry Veterans at IHOP (Red, White & Blue Pancakes, which come with glazed strawberries (red), blueberry compote (blue), and whipped cream (white.)
Then we heard about bombing missions from Air Force Veterans at Denny’s (Build Your Own Grand Slam®)
Then there was a quick stop with Marine Corps Veterans at White Castle (Breakfast Combo)
But unfortunately, The Anderson Veterans Society Grub Crawl didn’t include joining the Coast Guard Veterans at Friendly’s (A free Big-Two-Do combo meal for breakfast, or free All American Burger with fries and a drink for lunch or dinner), because there wasn’t a Friendly’s restaurant within fifty miles.
During all those Morning Meals, Anderson Veterans were talking about how there had been no really large-scale terrorist attacks on American soil since 9/11, and how Donald Trump’s 2016 election results has meant patriotism would be back in style. Yesterday was the Marine Corps’ 242nd birthday, but they had to buy their own cake.
So for all those unnamed heroes who’ve returned and those other volunteer members of the Armed Services and reservists who still may depart to protect us from all those murdering terrorist bastards overseas, you have our thanks. It’ll never make up for all your sacrifices, but at least it’s something. And for what it’s worth, our Quote for Today Committee would like to add this line from Benjamin Franklin: “There never was a good war or a bad peace.”
