From the words of Dixie Bones founder, Nelson Head:
“Over the past 22 years, our guests have given us patches from their uniforms.
We put them on display for all to enjoy.
It all started when we tacked patches from my navy flight suit. Since then, people from near and far have come to eat with us and have added to the collection.
Every single patch came from a real person, none from a website.
The men and women represented here wore a uniform in the service of their fellow man. Their patches tell the story of duty, honor, and sacrifice.
When I sit quietly in the presence of these symbols, I can feel their energy and devotion to causes greater than themselves. It’s an honor to be allowed such privileges.”
Dixie Bones displays over 500 unique patches and is always adding more to our collection. Dixie Bones cofounder, Ms. Kris Wolfe, is always the one who puts new patches up. She tries to put them over where the individual who gave it was sitting, but if there’s no space then she finds a spot somewhere else.
Many customers come back to see their patch proudly displayed on our walls. We encourage anyone to bring their patch.
These patches mean more to the staff at Dixie Bones & to the customers who come in than anything in the world. It was a pleasure to produce this video that explains their history.
