    National Press Release - FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
    Golden Corral Restaurants Salute America’s Heroes with
    Free Dinner on Military Appreciation Monday

    Raleigh, NC (October, 2008) – On Monday, November 17, 2008 from 5 to 9 pm, all 485 Golden Corral restaurants across America will offer any person who has served in the United States Military (including National Guard and Reserves) a free “thank you” dinner buffet and beverage - no identification required. This will be the eighth annual “thank you” dinner for our nation’s heroes from Golden Corral restaurants, who have provided over 1,835,000 complimentary meals to military personnel over the history of the event. Golden Corral with their local media partners, guests and the Disabled American Veterans’ organization have raised over $2,540,000 in contributions for the DAV state and local chapters.

    For the second year, Golden Corral’s guests and restaurant teams may send personal greetings to America’s military personnel on active duty overseas. From September 1 through November 17, 2008, special postcards will be available at all Golden Corral restaurants for sending messages of thanks and encouragement to the troops overseas. They will be delivered to our troops prior to the Holidays. In 2007, over 55,000 Military Appreciation post cards were delivered to military troops stationed overseas.

    Gary Sinise, celebrated actor/director and longtime advocate for our fighting men and women (active and retired) is supporting Golden Corral’s Military Appreciation Monday through a public service announcement recognizing the contributions made by members of the military.

    The DAV is an 87 year old non-profit organization dedicated to providing services – free of charge through its nationwide network – to disabled veterans and their families.

    Founded in 1973, privately-held Golden Corral Corporation is headquartered in Raleigh, NC. Theodore M. Fowler, Jr. is President and CEO. Golden Corral restaurants are located in 41 states. Visit www.goldencorral.com

    I was in an Applebees this weekend and they are offering meals (on the 11th) to the Service Member (active or retired) but you have to show ID.
