Atlanta Symphony, Falcons team up to serve veterans on Thanksgiving

There's no better way to volunteer time than serving our veterans. Hats off to Atlanta Falcons players Justin Blalock and Michael Turner, who provided a pre-Thanksgiving meal for wounded and senior military veterans and their families at the Atlanta VA Medical Center in Decatur. The Atlanta Symphony Orchestra musicians performed while the heros dined. ASO staff and musicians served the meal.
