My Granddaughter's Job


My second granddaughter is in her second year of college. She also just started a new job.

The place she is working is the first of a chain of restaurants. These places honor veterans and first responders.

The first week they were open they had theme days. One day they gave free meals to firefighters. Another gave free meals to the police. Active armed forces are always welcome.

There is a box for donations for people who wish to do so. The money will go to veterans groups.

One day my granddaughter was helpful to a young family. They were so grateful that they sought out the manager. They handed him $20 and told him it was for my granddaughter. They explained how cheerful and helpful she had been. She took the money and put it in the collection box.

Management held a meeting for all employees. They explained that they planned on placing pictures of actual service members on the walls.

My granddaughter began to tell them of some of the members of her family who had served our country. Management told her if she could provide pictures they would dedicate one booth to her family. The service members would be on the wall by the booth.

My granddaughter is proud of her family who have served.  I am proud of my granddaughter.
