The BBQ plate will include chicken with all the trimmings and will begin serving at 11 a.m. – 2 p.m. or while supplies last.
First responders will join the drive-thru celebration as veterans drive through the ‘Honor Lane’.
Veterans are also encouraged to decorate their vehicles in red, white and blue.
