Veteran's honored at a Waterloo breakfast

Posted:
WATERLOO (KWWL) -

Giving back to those who gave so much was the motto of Friday morning's Veterans Day breakfast.

With patriotic music playing, 30 veterans at Ravenwood Nursing home in Waterloo enjoyed a special breakfast. The employees say it's just a small token of their appreciation for many of their residents.

Roger Schmidt is one resident who served in the U.S. Army for 20 years. He was stationed in places like Germany and Korea. For him, this is a day of reflection.

"The way I feel, if it wasn't for the military and all of it's branches there wouldn't be a U.S.," Schmidt said.

There are many businesses and companies honoring veterans with a free meal on Veterans Day including Applebee's, Texas Roadhouse, Beck's on University Avenue and on College Hill.
