Veterans treated to free barbecue in Westfield

Hampden County

All veterans were treated to a free barbecue Sunday afternoon in Westfield. 

The free Veterans Day Barbecue at Indian Motorcycle of Springfield was to celebrate the 100th anniversary of Veterans Day.

Non-veterans were also able to get some food. Tickets for them were $20. 

“Those people up there, they already paid their debt and they deserve to be taken care of so we like to do things to raise money for them,” veteran Robert Graves told 22News, 

Graves added, “I am a vet, some of my coworkers, the owner of the shop is an Air Force veteran. It’s good just to see us doing the work so they can have the support that they need.” 

All proceeds from Sunday’s barbecue benefit the Holyoke Soldiers Home.
