(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.) A local food truck is honoring those who put their lives on the line to keep others safe.
Chad Buckles, the owner of Bucky's BBQ said he'll be offering meals for $1 off regular price Thursday from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.
All police officers, EMTs, firemen and military personnel are eligible for the discount.
Buckles is a veteran himself and said it was a simple way he could show his appreciation.
"As a veteran i just wanted to show support for first responders," Buckles said. "I understand the sacrifices that they make and things like that being a veteran, so it's just my way of paying it forward and paying it back."
The truck will be located near the Mattress Firm at 619 N Belt Hwy, Buckles said he would like to keep events like this going at least one a month.
