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.”
