A blog post normally is all about words, telling a story or
offering an opinion that hopefully the readers will relate to and
enjoy. This week, however, I don't believe anything I can type
could describe, adequately, what you can see in the video and
Sometimes in the restaurant industry you get to help make a
memory, that hopefully, will last a lifetime. This was one of those
occasions. A couple weeks ago Joshua Meyers, who is currently
serving in the United States Air Force, sent Scott an email message
asking for a favor…..

My name is Joshua Myers. I am currently serving overseas and set
to deploy in a few months. I am from Noblesville with plans to
return the first week in April to surprise my family with a visit
before I deploy. My family and I love Scotty's and my wife has set
up diner plans with them at your Indianapolis north location on the
4th of april so that I can surprise them. I was wondering with the
assistance of your restaurant if I could pose as one of your
waiters in order to surprise my family by showing up to take their
order. They have no clue I am coming home and I wanted to surprise
them in a way no soldier ever has. Just trying to be creative. Let
me know if this is something possible to accomplish.

I think this is awesome and I'd love to help make this work.
What time will you be coming?
I will set up a private table and hold it for you and your
family. I can let mgt know and we can keep you in our office until
they arrive. You can borrow an apron and we will give you a
Scotty's shirt to wear (you can keep for your courage, dedication
and commitment to our Country, it is the least I can do).
Let me know what time... this will be great!
Take a look at what happened from there…..
Thank you to Josh and to all the men and women who serve
and protect our country each and every day.
