Veterans Coffee Group to Reunite at Restaurant | Local News

HICKORY — Veterans Coffee Connection, a coffee group for veterans of all ages and branches of military service, will meet Wednesday, April 13 at 8:30 a.m. at Outback Steakhouse on Lenoir-Rhyne Boulevard in Hickory.

The group, sponsored by Carolina Caring, is designed to be a drop-in place for veterans to meet other veterans in the area. This free gathering, which meets on the third Tuesday of every month, is a place to share a cup of coffee, enjoy donuts provided by Dunkin’ Donuts and swap stories.

This month’s guest speaker is Jack McCabe, Vietnam veteran and author of the books “Those Left Behind” and “When We Came Home.” McCabe was a business owner for 20 years before retiring to focus on helping those who served our country. He will share what inspired him to write his books and his resources to help veterans suffering from PTSD, financial difficulties, family issues and more.

Carolina Caring for Veterans is proud to be a Level IV Partner of the We Honor Veterans program, an outreach initiative led by the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization and the US Department of Veterans Affairs.
