WATERTOWN, N.Y. (WWNY) - A Watertown group is serving Vittles for Vets.

Once a month, the Watertown Elks lodge has a luncheon for veterans. The program, called Vittles for Vets, started in May.

Any veteran from anywhere can come to the lodge to get together, eat lunch and share stories.

"It's just the guys getting together and chatting and saying do you remember this or remember that or did you know and it's just kinda fun talking with one another about things," said Arthur Feather, Air Force veteran.

“Our veterans, sometimes they are our forgotten lot and so we want to make sure that we don’t forget them and we do remember them and that we give them a place to come together, camaraderie, break bread together,” said Joan Carlo, exalted ruler of Watertown Elks Lodge No. 496.

The Elks lodge holds Vittles for Vets on the 3rd Wednesday of every month from noon until 2 p.m.

Veterans can give a $1 donation if they want. The Elks lodge is hoping more veterans will come to the lunches.
