Veterans, thank you for your service: Please let us treat you to an entrée on Veterans Day

In honor of the Veterans who have so bravely served our country, we here at Siena would like to express our gratitude for your service by treating all veterans to a free entrée on Wednesday evening for Veterans Day, November 11.

Thank you all for your service and we look forward to seeing you.

Veterans, please identify yourself to your server when you are seated.

As part of our observance of Veterans Day (Wednesday, November 11), Siena owner Stan Adams would like to share the following story of Ross A. McGinnis.

“I haven’t cried since second grade,” says Stan. “But several times I have teared up when a 90-year-old Veteran struggles out of his wheelchair or walker to thank me for our token effort.”

Read about Ross A. McGinnis who was posthumously awarded the United States’ highest decoration for bravery, the Medal of Honor, for his actions during the Iraq War.

Medal of Honor citation:
“For conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity at the risk of his life above and beyond the call of duty: Private First Class Ross A. McGinnis distinguished himself by acts of gallantry and intrepidity above and beyond the call of duty while serving as an M2 .50-caliber Machine Gunner, 1st Platoon, C Company, 1st Battalion, 26th Infantry Regiment, in connection with combat operations against an armed enemy in Adhamiyah, Northeast Baghdad, Iraq, on 4 December 2006. That afternoon his platoon was conducting combat control operations in an effort to reduce and control sectarian violence in the area. While Private McGinnis was manning the M2 .50-caliber Machine Gun, a fragmentation grenade thrown by an insurgent fell through the gunner’s hatch into the vehicle. Reacting quickly, he yelled “grenade,” allowing all four members of his crew to prepare for the grenade’s blast. Then, rather than leaping from the gunner’s hatch to safety, Private McGinnis made the courageous decision to protect his crew. In a selfless act of bravery, in which he was mortally wounded, Private McGinnis covered the live grenade, pinning it between his body and the vehicle and absorbing most of the explosion. Private McGinnis’ gallant action directly saved four men from certain serious injury or death. Private First Class McGinnis’ extraordinary heroism and selflessness at the cost of his own life, above and beyond the call of duty, are in keeping with the highest traditions of the military service and reflect great credit upon himself, his unit, and the United States Army.”
