Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett hosted the meal at Mikey's modern barbeque in downtown Milwaukee just a few hours ago.
It came about during the ten years that the mayor has organized a holiday donation drive for vets many of them telling him they'd love a great meal with music and all the Surge restaurant group was more than happy to oblige hosting 70 veterans today.
Many of the veterans who came to the luncheon got a ride from workers at the HUD VASH program.
That's Veteran Affairs Supported Housing through the department of housing and urban development.
While many of them might face big struggle today's camaraderie offered motivation to keep up the fight.
