LST 325 hosts breakfast for veterans

For the past eleven years, the LST-325 has prepared breakfast for more than 600 veterans on the morning of Veterans Day.

Event officials tell us it's a time for veterans to connect, tell war stories and grow with the brotherhood and sisterhood they're apart of. 

Because of cold temperatures the event was held downstairs instead of on the top deck of the ship.

"There's 20 million veterans in the U.S. right now and the veterans are the people that have given us our freedom,” said Mark D. Browning, “It's a very special day and this is the very minimum we can do to give tribute to our veterans "

The breakfast is sponsored by the Browning family and has been for the past eleven years.
