“It is a way for us to show our gratitude for what they have done for us and for what they have done throughout the years, ” Waters True Value Store Manager Michael Mayhill said. “You cant say thank you enough.”
A free lunch that consisted of chili, chicken noodle soup, cookies, brownies along with tea and coffee was served by employees of Waters True Value, members of the Legion Riders and members of P and S security to the veterans.
The day also consisted of indoor and outdoor exhibits that included: WWII 4th Armored Division Re-enactors, Legion Riders, Army Reserve 863rd QM Detachment display and Army Reserve 129th Transportation Co. The indoor exhibits included: Great Bend Military Moms drop off location (Waters true values and P and S Security are both drop off locations for the entire month of November), Disabled American Veterans, Quilts of Valor display and the Golden Belt Veterans Memorial.
“It is great that Waters True Value put this on, it is greatly appreciated by veterans,” Great Bend Vietnam War veteran Mike Kultgen said.
