Veteran grateful for Hy-Vee recognition

Recently I have had some good things happen to me from Hy-Vee.

First, I received a great jacket from the president of the company, in honor of me being a veteran. Soon after, I was approached by Rich Ripley, my store manager, about wanting to make a Facebook post with a picture of me from 1958, when I was part of the U.S. Air Force.

The response overwhelmed me. I never thought so many friends and customers would reply.

Then, to top all of this, Hy-Vee offered a free breakfast Monday for all veterans.

After almost 10 years of employment I want to say: Thank you, Hy-Vee.
