Guests can purchase and personalize 2016 Hooters Calendars to be sent to troops overseas as a part of Operation Calendar Drop
ATLANTA, GA – November 2, 2015 – This Veterans Day, Hooters invites all active-duty and retired military nationwide to enjoy a free meal as a “thank you” for their service. On Wednesday, Nov. 11, all veterans and active-duty military personnel can enjoy an entrée on the house, served up with warm Hooters Girl hospitality, by presenting a military ID or proof of service at any Hooters location across the country. Hooters also invites its guests to join military support efforts through its annual Operation Calendar Drop program.
“For more than three decades, Hooters has supported the servicemen and women that fight and sacrifice every day for our freedoms,” said Carl Sweat, chief marketing officer for Hooters. “As a token of our appreciation for all that our troops do to serve our country, it’s our honor to serve them this Veterans Day with a delicious meal on the house, served up with world-class Hooters Girl hospitality.”
As part of its military support, Hooters also invites guests to participate in the annual Operation Calendar Drop program by purchasing a 2016 Hooters Calendar and including a message of appreciation and support for the troops. Hooters will collect the personalized calendars and deliver them to U.S. military stationed overseas. This year’s calendar cover features 2015 Miss Hooters International Meagan Pastorchik from the Hooters of North Charleston located in Charleston, South Carolina.
Hooters support for the military community spans decades and has resulted in hundreds of thousands of dollars raised for non-profit military organizations. Everyone is invited to share photos of their Veterans Day visit to Hooters via Facebook, Instagram and Twitter with the #HootersMakesYouHappy hashtag.
