“It’s a privilege to have this chance to honor our active duty and
veteran military for their courage and sacrifice,” said Bruce Lane, Vice
President of Quaker Steak & Lube. “These brave men and women have put
themselves in harm’s way and spend time away from home and families to
ensure we all have the many freedoms we enjoy. We commend them, and
invite them to be recognized on Veterans Day,” he added.
Quaker Steak & Lube will also honor fallen military heroes with Fallen
Soldiers Tables set up at participating locations. The Fallen Soldiers
Table serves to remind all civilians and military members of the
ultimate sacrifice given by troops who lost their lives in the fight for
peace and liberty. The Tables will be set with a white table cloth
signifying soldiers’ pure intentions in the call to serve. On the table
will be a single red rose in a vase, which represents the blood shed for
freedom. A slice of lemon will be placed on a plate to symbolize the
bitter fate of all fallen soldiers. A salt shaker on the table will
represent the tears shed by the families of those who never came home,
and a glass will be placed upside down, signifying the fallen will no
longer take a drink. Finally, one empty chair will be placed at the
table. The table will provide an opportunity to remember those who have
sacrificed for the freedom for all.

thousands of veteran and active duty service members. More than 7,500
