I think this is awesome.
I think this is an absolutely fantastic way to thank any veterans or active military personnel. The thousands of dollars lost by giving away individual meals is more than made up for by making one group of people feel recognized. We have come a very long way from the dark days of spitting on Vietnam Veterans. Unpopular war or not, this is what these people chose to do and they contribute to the security of our country. They should be recognized.
Now, I'd like to see this expanded to firefighters and policemen, 2 other groups who usually just go about their jobs until something happens when they are needed.
