MAN WALKS INTO CHICK-FIL-A: Is Completely Blown Away When He Saw This

Chick-fil-A, the same fast-food outlet has once again
proved a positive to the world. This time it did so by
unveiling an amazing Veterans Day tribute that left
Georgia resident Eric Comfort in complete shock.
According to a Facebook post he published on Monday,
when he walked into a local Chick-fil-A, Comfort
discovered a “Missing Man Table” that contained a single
rose, a Bible and a folded American flag, as well as a
plaque within which was the following explanation: “This
table is reserved to honor our missing comrades in arms.
The tablecloth is white — symbolizing the purity of
their motives when answering the call of duty. The
single red rose, displayed in a vase, reminds us of the
life of each of the missing and their loved ones and
friends of these Americans who keep the faith, awaiting
answers. The vase is tied with a red ribbon, symbol of
our continued determination to account for our missing.
A pinch of salt symbolizes the tears endured by those
missing and their families who seek answers. The Bible
represents the strength gained through faith to sustain
those lost from our country, founded as one nation under
God. The glass is inverted — to symbolize their
inability to share this evening’s toast. The chair is
empty — they are missing.”
After the story went viral, the store manager, Alex
Korchan, explained to WSB that his team members had set
up the table because they “wanted to honor veterans.”
Furthermore, he revealed that he planned to offer free
meals to all veterans and their family members this
Veterans Day between the hours of 5 p.m. and 8 p.m.
Korchan also put up a poster so that customers could
write in the names of loved ones who they have lost.
“We’ve had a lot of people who have come in and seen it
and been touched by it,” Korchan continued. “It’s been
special to see.”
