Tim McGraw once again joined forces with both Operation Homefront and Outback Steakhouse, surprising vets and their families during lunch. McGraw took time out of his schedule to fraternize with military members over the Memorial Day holiday weekend so he could express his appreciation, face to face, since they do so much to keep America free.
In a video from last weekend’s lunch at an Outback in Chicago, McGraw prefaced his involvement, saying, “All the service they’ve put in, and the generations of service they put in? It’s such a great program and I am happy to be a part of it.”
McGraw also spoke to the room of assembled veterans, personally thanking them for their efforts on behalf of all Americans.
“I want to be an American and I want to be free, and you make me proud to be an American and because of you, I am free,” McGraw said, succinctly summing up his respect for servicemen and women. “So on behalf of my family, Outback and Operation Homefront, I want to say thank you and have a great day and have a great weekend. Now let’s eat.” Sounds like a plan!
The ‘Highway Don’t Care’ singer greeted vets and their loved ones in the restaurant, making their meals that much better. Who needs desert when you can get a handshake and a hug, as well as a personal thanks, from Tim McGraw?
The singer also surprised vets at Outback during the Thanksgiving season, as well.
