CHICO, Calif. - Free dental work for the military was offered Friday at Kremer Dental Care in Chico off of Esplanade and Independence Circle.

This was the seventh year the dentistry has offered a Freedom Day event for all active military, veterans, their spouses and all children under 18.

Kevin Kremer, a dentist and co-owner of the dentistry, said they even helped a 95-year-old World War II Veteran Friday.

“I was actually getting emotional earlier today just talking about it,” said Kremer. “My grandfathers were both World War II veterans and I think that's a resounding word that you said, thankful, is gratitude. We're so grateful and they're so grateful and they're thanking us and no thank you, no thank you, and everybody's just so grateful and there's that sense of just appreciation.”

Many people who volunteered to help with the event said it's the least they can do to help the ones sacrificing so much for our country.

A raffle, free shirts, beverages and snacks were also offered at this event.
