November 11 is a special day for all of us at Sensational Shakes. Charlie Herendon, the father of founder Elizabeth Dyer, was a World War II veteran. Her brother, David Herendon, was killed in action in Vietnam. Therefore, honoring veterans is of paramount importance to all of us here. Our small token of appreciation shown by giving away a shake to every veteran who came by was a small sacrifice compared to their courage and dedication to our freedom.
This year, the event was made even more special with an appearance from Dale Sissell. Dale is a Vietnam Veteran and the author of Vietnam: A View From My Cockpit. Dale was available to exchange war stories and sign copies of his book. It was a great honor to sit and speak with this man – A True American Hero.
Copies of his book are still available for purchase at Sensational Shakes.
