Bismarck restaurants pay tribute to fallen U.S. service members
BISMARCK, N.D. (KFYR) - Last week, thirteen American service members were killed in a suicide bomb attack at Kabul airport in Afghanistan. To honor them, bars around Bismarck-Mandan have been paying tribute to their memory by setting reserved tables for the thirteen fallen soldiers.
“I think it’s just, celebrate the people that gave their lives for the country, and choose to go over and help us out. They might not went to be there, but they are. It made me feel like he cares about what we have going on, or people who do serve and their families,” said Specialist Parker Herring of the North Dakota National Guard.
”From start to end, for everything that’s happened. It’s just sad, you know. For somebody to put an idea out there, and something that can make people feel a little bit better about a situation. I was on board for that,” said Tim Conover, general manager at Blarney Stone Pub in Bismarck.
Thousands of people have liked and shared posts on social media this weekend from Blarney Stone, Laughing Sun, Stonehome Brewing, and many other bars in the area. The tribute is happening all over the country. The names of the fallen service members were made public this weekend.
