SAN DIEGO (KGTV) - Several US Navy Sailors put on their uniforms on their days off to help deliver meals to San Diego-area military veterans. 

Meals on Wheels President Debbie Case said they deliver 500,000 meals every year and about 42 percent of those meals go to veterans.

“To see the active duty and the respect that they have for these veterans is incredible,” said Case.

Meals on Wheels makes 1,400 deliveries every day. That means more than 500 are for veterans.

Case added they also started delivering to disabled veterans no matter how old they are or when they ended their service.
