Thanks, Serg Group, for honoring military

At a time when our country and the world are in such turmoil and so many of our young people are fighting and dying in far-off places, it's time to stop and reflect on the sacrifices made in World War I, World War II, Korea, Vietnam, Iran, Iraq, Somalia, the Persian Gulf and Afghanistan. On Memorial Day, the Serg Restaurant Group took the time to remember them. I hope the rest of us will offer up a prayer and contemplate their devotion to our country and our way of life.

I would like to voice my appreciation to the Serg Group for giving a 25 percent discount to active duty military, veterans and retired military personnel on Memorial Day. Restaurant employees were also very gracious, going to the tables to thank them for their service.

My husband, a World War II vet, and I were pleased to have spent the evening in the company of gracious Serg Group employees.
