    ATLANTA, Sept. 4 /PRNewswire/ -- Waffle House has announced the launch of
 Waffles For Heroes, a month-long campaign to thank the men and women who serve
 and protect our communities.

 firefighter, EMT or active military personnel in uniform can get a free waffle
 with their meal purchase at participating Waffle House restaurants.  In
 addition, anyone wearing a USA Flag pin or themed clothing will receive a free
 beverage with their meal purchase.

 deserving public servants in our communities," said Pat Warner, Waffle House

 11th tragedy, this promotion will encourage all Americans to show their
 patriotic spirit by wearing the USA Flag."
