Chic-Fil-A Gives WWII Veteran Free Food For Life
November 17, 2018
A Chic-Fil-A restaurant in Avon, Indiana, is honoring its favorite customer with free meals for life.
Ernie, a 95-year-old World War II veteran, first came to the restaurant about a year ago. He comes back nearly every day and orders a chicken nugget kid's meal with a root beer.
"I like nuggets," Ernie said with a smile. "It's the best root beer in town."
While Ernie sits down to enjoy his meal, he's always joined by employees.
"All of us take turns sitting with him and eating with him," said team leader Amy Chambliss. "We just enjoy his company."
On Veteran's Day, they told Ernie he's considered family and he no longer has to pay for his meals.
Though Ernie tried to refuse their offer, he says he is thankful for the new friendships he's formed.
"It just makes me feel good," Ernie said. "It makes me feel good because people treat me nice."
