To the editor:
I walked alone into a desolate restaurant for a quick bite of lunch prior to working a shift in a local 911 dispatch center.
As I sat at my table, I saw an elderly man walking into the business to place his order.
He was wearing an Operation Desert Storm T-shirt and wearing a hat adorned with the words Vietnam Veteran and several accompanying pins and markers. The old man hobbled to a table near the window and sat down to enjoy his food.
