My husband, CW4 Bobby Dennis, was deployed to Iraq in 2004/2005. The one thing he missed the most, food wise, was Chick-fil-A. When we talked to him he would always say that when he got home that Chick-fil-A was one of the first places he wanted to eat.
He was scheduled to come home for his two week leave in November of 2004 in the afternoon. We had arranged for a surprise welcome home party f... read more >
At the beginning of August of 2010, I found out I was pregnant. I wanted to surprise my husband so I asked him to meet me for lunch (at Chick-fil-A of course). This wasn't uncommon so he wasn't suspicious at all. I got three tests that came back positive and I took a picture of all three on my phone. As soon as we sat down for lunch, I sent him a txt with the picture in it. The picture shows... read more >
My baby girl, Joy, was on the floor one day just after we had picked up some Chick-fil-A. She was so excited about the bag of food that she managed to get up on all fours and start crawling toward the bag--for the first time! We laughed so hard that her first time crawling was because of Chick-fil-A. What can I say; the girl's got good taste. Moral of the story? If you are worried about your chil... read more >
On August 27, 2012 I was riding my road bike down Call Street. While crossing the intersection at chapel a car hit me. I flew across the hood and landed face first on the other side of the intersection. I was not wearing a helmet and probably was going about 20 miles. Obviously not a great situation for any person to be in, especially on the first day of classes. But while I was lying on the g... read more >
My dog became overcome from the heat on our walk to a gas station recently. I had run out of gas and had to walk with her versus leaving her on the bus. I could see signs that she was dehydrated as she was crying out of both eyes. I walked up to the drive-thru and asked for a cup of ice water and they gladly passed the cup out of the window. I sat down with her in the shaded wet grass for at least... read more >
I would like to inform you that I recently had the most amazing experience happen to me. Until today I didn't know that people such as the employees in my Chick-fil-A story still existed on this earth.
Today I received a card from Chick-fil-A in Avondale, AZ. It read, "Brandi Nicole S., We are just letting you know we found your driver's license in our parking lot and since we had no phone numbe... read more >
We go visit my Gramma once a week and her favorite thing to do is go get chicken sandwiches and it’s become a tradition to go to Chick-fil-A. Last week as we sat and ate I realized how much I appreciated this special spot for our memories. Even though it’s the most crowded spot at lunchtime, there is always a clean seat, fresh flowers on the tables, the most polite employees, delicious food and a ... read more >
Two years ago on August 20th, 2010, my family received the devastating news that our son/brother, 19 year old LCpl. Cody S. Childers had been killed in action in Afghanistan while on patrol with his 2/6 Marine Squad. I went thru the motions and made many decisions that I prayed Cody would have wanted in the days following.
One morning a few days before the big Military Memorial service we were p... read more >
