Duke Field Air Reserve veterans breakfast every first Thursday

"We enjoy having them," restaurant owner Bill White says. “We give them a little discount and they have a good time. (Server) Sheila (Kurpil) takes good care of them."

Still, it’s first come, first served, as 26-year ART veteran Mary Alberts learns when she plunks her plate down on a table she shares with Chamberlain and Conrad Rhoads.

"You men got all the eggs!" she laments.

"You should've gotten your food instead of yakking to everybody," Rhoads says.

Sharing memories

Some of the vets served in the Vietnam War, some served in Desert Storm, and veterans of other conflicts are in the mix.

"I missed Vietnam. I went to Germany and got drunk and chased women instead," Chamberlain says straight-faced as Rhoads and Alberts laughed.
