We don't have McCormick and Schmick here, but all the Golden Corrals are doing this. I hope these restaurants yearly business increases because of this patriotic effort.

I called McCormick & Schmick and they verified that we eat for free but with a somewhat limited menu. Whiskey Tango Foxtrot! I guess we'll go anyway.

Cuchieddie, well that is a bummer, I was hoping it would be across the board anything a person wanted.

I came across this from reading a friends blog. I hadn't seen this kind of email before, but I know the person that wrote this did do her homework. (Plus I checked it out as well on Snopes and they say it's true. I guess I need to consider shopping at Sears more often as well.) This is the type of business that I would be more than happy to buy from.

double-checked with snopes and found this to be true.
Subject: Sears - Christmas shopping has already started

I know I needed this reminder since Sears isn't always my first choice. Amazing when you think of how long the war has lasted and they haven't withdrawn from their commitment Could we each buy at least one thing at Sears this year?

How does Sears treat its employees who are called up for military duty? By law, they are required to hold their jobs open and available, but nothing more. Usually, people take a big pay cut and lose benefits as a result of being called up.

Sears is voluntarily paying the difference in salaries and maintaining all benefits, including medical insurance and bonus programs, for all called up reservist employees for up to two years.

I submit that Sears is an exemplary corporate citizen and should be recognized for its contribution. I suggest we all shop at Sears, and be sure to find a manager to tell them why we are there so the company gets the positive reinforcement it well deserves.

Pass it on.

Decided to check this before I sent it forward. So I sent the following e-mail to the Sears Customer Service Department:

I received this e-mail and I would like to know if it is true. If it is, the Internet may have just become one very good source of advertisement for your company. I know I would go out of my way to buy products from Sears instead of another store for a like item, even if it's cheaper at that store.

This is their answer to my e-mail:

Dear Customer:

Thank you for contacting Sears.The information is factual. We appreciate your positive feedback.

Sears regards service to our country as one of greatest sacrifices our young men and women can make. We are happy to do our part to lessen the burden they bear at this time.

Bill Thorn
Sears Customer Care

Please pass this on to all your friends. Sears needs to be recognized for this outstanding contribution and we need to show them as Americans, we do appreciate what they are doing for our military!!!
