A 'Token Of Gratitude' To All Veterans

Posted: Updated:
MANKATO, MN -

All across the nation, people are honoring those who are or have sacrificed for our freedom. To say thank you, Hy-Vee is giving area veterans a special treat.

 Both Mankato Hy-Vee stores treating anyone with military service to a complete breakfast buffet this morning... free of charge. Organizers say it's a simple token of gratitude.  Downtown Hy-Vee Kitchen Manager,  Mark Delozier, said, "Just to thank everybody that has served our country and that this is just a small bit of what we can do for them."

In Mankato, managers estimate 800 hometown heroes were treated and more than 75,000 at all Hy-Vee stores combined.
