A restaurant in Clarksburg, West Virginia, is honoring the 13 servicemembers who died in Kabul, Afghanistan, with a moving display.

The Texas Roadhouse restaurant located on Emily Drive reserved a table with 13 chairs to represent the fallen heroes, WDTV reported Thursday.

Each place features a card with the servicemember’s name written on it and a glass of beer.

“A Texas Roadhouse employee tells 5 News that guests and veteran employees have been adding their own military items to the table,” the outlet reported.

Facebook user and restaurant employee Jocelyn Stevens shared the photos of the tribute Wednesday morning and said the establishment “won’t forget the 13 fallen.”

The pictures showed what appeared to be candles on the plates, a folded American flag at the center of the table, and a teddy bear sitting nearby:
