WWII vets gather at a Denny’s to share stories about their service. They call themselves the Third Thursday Lunch Bunch, and the decades haven’t dimmed their memories.
CONCORD, Calif. — The procession of white-haired men hobbling into the Denny’s restaurant starts about 11 a.m. Most arrive by themselves, although family members deliver a few. They are veterans of World War II, stooped with age, some clutching canes, who make the pilgrimage on the third Thursday of every month to gather with other men imprinted by war.
