The Aurora Pizzeria helps keep veterans together while honoring their service

AURORA, Colorado (KDVR) – A U.S. Army veteran bought a restaurant in an American Legion post office to keep the post active. It worked. Now he thanks his veterans with a free monthly meal.

If you drive through this quiet neighborhood of Aurora you will see the pizzeria. You could say it looks like a great little place for a piece. You would be right.

The place also wears two hats, great food and it’s American Legion Post 1992.

“The Post meets here once a month and the members come here once a day. Many of them come here every day to eat, visit and have a drink,” said Dave Seubert, owner of Hero’s Pizzeria and Tavern.

“In the morning breakfast, lunch, dinner, pizza, calzones, spaghetti lasagna, hamburgers, we have a full menu,” said Seubert, a US Army veteran.

Seubert’s restaurant kept post open in 1992, which was good news for local veterans.

For four years now, Seubert has been happy to serve those who serve a free meal once a month every month.

“I was a veterinarian and if you met a lot of people here, which is what you have today, you would understand that there are a lot of great people and it is one thing for them to come back to them and to any veteran,” Seubert said .

It’s a simple but warm gesture.

Sometimes a friendly smile and a warm meal is the best way to say thank you.
