ATLANTA --(Business Wire)--
Hooters is showing its gratitude for veterans and active duty military
personnel this Veterans Day. On Monday, Nov. 11, Hooters invites all
veterans and current servicemen and women to enjoy a free meal, up to
$10.99 in value with any drink purchase, by presenting a military ID or
proof of service at any Hooters location across the country.
"We are grateful for the opportunity to show appreciation for our
military personnel who have selflessly sacrificed for the freedom of all
Americans," said Andrew Pudduck, vice president of marketing, Hooters of
America. "Supporting the military community is very important to the
Hooters family; we hope our veterans and active duty military will join
us on Veterans Day to relax and enjoy a meal on us as a small but
earnest way to say 'thank you' for your service."
In addition, Hooters is sending extra love to the troops with its annual Operation
Calendar Drop campaign. The 2014
Hooters Calendar is now on sale and guests are encouraged to
purchase an extra calendar and write a personal message of appreciation
for the troops. Hooters will collect the personalized calendars and
deliver them to U.S. military stationed overseas.

Hooters via Facebook (News - Alert), Instagram and Twitter with the #StepIntoAwesome

Earlier this year Hooters kicked off the inaugural Hooters for Heroes™
campaign, which raised $150,000 fr the Green
Beret Foundation (GBF). The Hooters for
Heroes fundraising program was established to raise money and awareness
for military non-profit organizations dedicated to U.S. veterans and
their families. Hooters presented a check to the GBF during the Hooters
International Swimsuit Pageant events and invited military members to
attend the pageant as special guests.
