A tradition continued Monday morning, as veterans boarded LST 325 for breakfast.
Officials say the food was prepared in the same galley where troops ate before they disembarked for the D-Day Invasion back in 1944.
Many of the veterans come in from out of state for the breakfast. They say this is the one time a year they get to see some of their friends.
"I feel honored to be a part of it. It's such a good feeling to have so many that come down here and get a free breakfast. We get to thank them for their service and they get to see the ship," Bob Jornlin said. Jornlin has been the captain of the LST since 2000.
