Niko's Bar and Gyros on Friday reserved a table in honor of the 13 American troops who were killed in the events in the middle east. Additionally, the Northeast Ohio restaurant announced that they will donate a portion of proceeds raised in the coming weeks to those affected by the attack in Kabul.
"If they were to walk in here, all of them, and they sat at a table and told me they just got back from Afghanistan, I would've bought them a round of drinks," owner Niko Moulagianis told 3News.
The Ironwood Cafe in Westlake also posted Friday afternoon that they would reserve a table for the troops killed in Afghanistan, sharing the message with their Facebook followers.
"It's something just so small that I can do," general manager Shannon Vazquez said. "It hit home to me. ... We need to take care of our military, recognize our military, the fallen servicemen."
