New Bar Trend Honoring Fallen Soldiers Hits Big Tony's Grill In McKinney
Here's a serious one for you, Aters. Maybe you've heard this story that went viral recently: On St. Paddy's Day, a man named Jeff Beaurline walked into Pub 25 in Newtown, Connecticut, and asked the manager if he could leave a cold Guinness on the bar all day for Navy SEAL Lt. Michael Murphy, who was killed in action in Afghanistan in 2005. The bar owner, vehemently refusing Beaurline's money, gladly obliged and left a cold Guinness out on the bar all day, accompanied by a "reserved" sign and an American flag. Murphy was one quarter of SEAL Team 10, which also included the now famed Marcus Luttrell, the only remaining member of Team 10 and author of New York Times best-seller Lone Survivor.
