IHOP restaurants will once again honor the 22 million veterans currently living in the United States and more than 1.3 million Armed Forces members currently serving in the military by offering them a free stack of Red, White and Blue pancakes on Veterans Day.

Participating IHOP restaurants throughout the United States will serve a stack of Red, White, and Blue pancakes—buttermilk pancakes crowned with glazed strawberries, blueberry compote, and whipped topping—free for veterans and active duty military on Veterans Day, November 11th, from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.

“Having served as an Army Ranger and infantry officer, I am proud to be part of a brand that honors the brave men and women who have dedicated their lives to keeping us safe and free,” said President of International House of Pancakes, LLC Darren Rebelez. “We are looking forward to having our nation’s heroes as guests at their local IHOP, and personally thanking them for their service.”

Proof includes: US Uniformed Services ID Card, US Uniformed Services Retired ID Card, Current Leave and Earnings Statement (LES), veterans organization card (i.e. American Legion, VFW, etc.), photograph of themselves in US military uniform, wearing their uniform, DD214, military dog tags, and citation or commendation.
