Mission BBQ celebrates Armed Forces Week

PANAMA CITY, Fla. (WJHG/WECP) - It's national Armed Forces Week and one restaurant is spending the week celebrating our military.

Mission BBQ is giving out free sandwiches all week to anyone in the military and veterans.

Each day pays tribute to a specific branch of the military. They will have an overall tribute on Saturday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Andrew Johnstone, Director of Operations at Mission BBQ, said, "Men and women with the armed forces, you know, being in Afghanistan or, you know, Somalia, they don't really know where their next meal is going to be, you know, they put their life on the line, they're away from their families and stuff like that so this is a little way to kind of give back and thank them for their service."

The schedule for the week is as follows:

Army: Monday, May 13
Marine Corps: Tuesday, May 14
Navy: Wednesday, May 15
Air Force: Thursday, May 16
