“Operation Famous Salute” returns for an 11th year to all Tennessee Famous Dave’s restaurant locations, including the local metro location in East Brainerd over the Memorial Day holiday weekend.
“Operation Famous Salute” is a letter writing campaign geared to deliver thank you messages and notes of encouragement to our nation’s active and recovering military service members.
Beginning Friday, May 26, all Tennessee Famous Dave’s locations will invite patrons to write to active services members and those recovering in our nation’s military hospitals. In turn, Famous Dave’s will provide all stationary, a coloring page for children, and all the postage costs to send these messages to our nation’s military members.
“This is one of the best things we can do to honor those who have given their lives in service to defend our nation, and each one of us,” said franchise co-owner Tamara Lister. “And that is, to take care of those presently serving...to remind those men and women that we are always thinking of them.”
Since its inception, “Operation Famous Salute” has collected over 13,000 letters and sent them to military personnel serving around the world, and recovering stateside.
Famous Dave’s locations will collect letters beginning Friday, May 26, through the close of business on Memorial Day, Monday, May 29.
