Thank You To Chick-Fil-A

From Conservative Tribune — a story to touch the hearts of all patriots where the honoring of our military veterans is so beautifully rendered.  Other companies should be ashamed for not doing something like this.  

Thank you for being one of the patriotic in our country who show that neither race, political ideology, ethnic background, nor gender takes away from being able to acknowledge the worth of those who have given so much in the line of duty in service to freedom, family, and country.

 

 

Chick-fil-A, the same fast-food outlet that constantly gets accused by liberals of being evil, has once again proved the opposite to the world.

This time it did so by unveiling an amazing Veterans Day tribute that left Georgia resident Eric Comfort in complete shock.

According to a Facebook post he published on Monday, when he walked into a local Chick-fil-A, Comfort discovered a “Missing Man Table” that contained a single rose, a Bible and a folded American flag, as well as a plaque within which was the following explanation:

“This table is reserved to honor our missing comrades in arms. The tablecloth is white — symbolizing the purity of their motives when answering the call of duty. The single red rose, displayed in a vase, reminds us of the life of each of the missing and their loved ones and friends of these Americans who keep the faith, awaiting answers. The vase is tied with a red ribbon, symbol of our continued determination to account for our missing. A pinch of salt symbolizes the tears endured by those missing and their families who seek answers. The Bible represents the strength gained through faith to sustain those lost from our country, founded as one nation under God. The glass is inverted — to symbolize their inability to share this evening’s toast. The chair is empty — they are missing.”

After the story went viral, the store manager, Alex Korchan, explained to WSB that his team members had set up the table because they “wanted to honor veterans.”

Furthermore, he revealed that he planned to offer free meals to all veterans and their family members this Veterans Day between the hours of 5 p.m. and 8 p.m.

Korchan also put up a poster so that customers could write in the names of loved ones who they have lost.

“We’ve had a lot of people who have come in and seen it and been touched by it,” Korchan continued. “It’s been special to see.”

A whole lot of liberals could learn something from Chick-fil-A this Veterans Day — assuming of course that, for once, they’re able to put aside political ideology and learn.

    Not only do they have the best chicken nuggets in the world, but Chick-Fil-A is an outstanding organization that shows their patriotism and respect for our military with this display – something you might see in a higher end restaurant but wouldn’t expect to see in a fast food place.

    This story touched me. Even if I didn’t like Chick-Fil-A (I love their chicken sandwiches), I’d go there just to support one of the most truly American businesses in the country. Chick-Fil-A consistently displays the things that made America great.

    • Uriel says:

      Me too Garnet. What an amazingly respectful and not costly way to support our country and vets. Reminds me of the Blue Angels missing man formation.

    This is wonderful! The American spirit still lives despite the onslaught from the left.

    • Uriel says:

      For now. With the latest from Paris. It’s about to get tested here too.

      • Hardnox says:

        If the troglodytes do a repeat here they will discover a refresher course in the 2nd Amendment. It will suddenly be about the hunting that the left says is protected … but instead it will be about hunting jihadis.

        Americans aren’t going to roll over for that shit.

    What a beautiful gesture. SALUTE Chick-Fil-A.

    p.s. I heard that Starbucks offered a free foo-foo-of-the- day to anyone who would walk on the American flag.

    • Uriel says:

      Hey Terry. It is at that. As to Starbucks. Look at their latest “Christmas cups. Talk about PC and ominous. I don’t buy there anyway but Really won’t now.
