ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Once again on the anniversary of the 9/11 terror attacks on America, the Albany Chick-fil-A's wanted to honor the men and women who protect us.
Friday the Albany and Lee County Chick Fil A's gave free lunches to first responders and military persons in uniform. The owners wanted to say thanks to fire, police, EMS, or armed forces men and women, and thought September 11th was the proper day to honor them.
Chick-fil-A Head Coach Dustin Walker said "It still means something to us. We appreciate just the sacrifice that the officers make for us on a daily basis, and we want to honor them."
This is the second year that the Albany Chick-fil-A owners have hosted first responders on 9-11. Last year they served close to one hundred men and women lunch.
