opinion: Veterans visiting Ann Arbor impressed by the kindness of strangers
Recently while visiting Ann Arbor, my Marines veteran friend and I, an Air Force veteran, were having breakfast at a local Denny's restaurant. We had hats on that identified us as veterans.
There were three gentlemen sitting at the booth across from our table. One of them stated he also was an Air Force vet.
After they left the restaurant, our waitress came over and explained that the men had picked up our check as a way of thanking us for serving our country. They left no names and said nothing to us before leaving other than thanks for your service.
As Vietnam vets, we would like to thank them and tell them it really was unexpected, but very much appreciated.
