URM Lunch Honors Veterans

Honoring the veterans of America’s Armed Forces today, Andy Bales, CEO of Union Rescue Mission, greeted many former veterans prior to a special lunch prepared and served by the Daily Grill Restaurant in the URM cafeteria in their honor.

With an enormous American flag draped across the wall, Andy extolled the virtue of honor and sacrifice, saying “…today more than ever we need to recognize those brothers and sisters who risk their lives in the service of our country, so today we honor them”. Volunteer Manager, Alex Cornejo, then asked each veteran to identify themselves and where they had served.  It was a touching time for those listening as well as those sharing how they had served their country.

A delicious meal of Daily Grill’s famous meatloaf, red-skinned mashed potatoes, green salad, and mixed vegetables and, for dessert, peach cobbler was then served the vets in appreciation of their sacrifice and service to this country.
