LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A local Vietnam Veteran was honored for his service at a local restaurant Tuesday.

Richard 'Buddy' Sinnock Sr. was the recipient of a free meal at the Dixie Highway O'Charley's.

Sinnock served as a United States Marine from 1962 to 1966.

He served in North Carolina, the Caribbean and Japan.

"It feels very, very good. This is not the reception we got when we came back in 1965. Yes this is very, very nice," U.S. Marine Richard "Buddy" Sinnock Sr. said. "All of our Marines, our servicemen and women, need to be honored this way."

More than 100 people have been honored during O'Charley's Hometown Hero program.
