Two Chick-fil-A locations gave American veterans the respect they deserve.
Chick-fil-A’s in Gardendale and Fultondale, Alabama created a symbolic table-setting for fallen US veterans in order to commemorate Memorial Day this year, according to ABC 33/40.
The missing man table-setting includes a white tablecloth “to honor a soldier’s pure heart when he answers his country’s call to duty” and an “empty chair for the missing soldiers who are not here.”
Check out the heartfelt gesture here:
“We cover a small table with a white cloth to honor a soldier’s pure heart when he answers his country’s call to duty.
We place a lemon slice and grains of salt on a plate to show a captive soldier’s bitter fate and tears of families waiting for loved ones to return.
We push an empty chair to the table for the missing soldiers who are not here.
We lay a black napkin for the sorrow of captivity, and turn over the glass for the meal that won’t be eaten.
We place a white candle for peace. And finally a red rose in a vase tied with a red ribbon for the hope that all our missing will return someday.
You are not forgotten so long as there is one left in whom your memory remains.”
