    Texas Roadhouse Restaurants

    We're a family restaurant. And, we believe our family is every member of every community that has a Texas Roadhouse.

    It is important to give back to the communities that are so much a part of Texas Roadhouse. That means playing an active role in the events that shape the lives of the people we live and work with. That's why you're likely to see Andy the Armadillo at your local little league game or reading to the children in your local schools. That's also why you'll see our Roadies both in the restaurant and out in the community supporting your local charitable organizations, schools, and fundraisers.

    Corporal Jordan L. Spears, 21, of Memphis, Indiana, was lost at sea Oct 1, 2014, in the North Arabian Gulf, while supporting U.S. operations in Iraq and Syria (Operation Inherent Resolve). He was a Crew Chief with Marine Tiltrotor Squadron 163, Marine Aircraft Group 16, 3rd Marine Aircraft Wing, I Marine Expeditionary Force, Marine Corps Air Station Miramar, California.

    Spears, along with another Marine, went into the water when the aircraft he was aboard appeared to lose power and descended to the surface of the ocean shortly after takeoff. The other Marine was rescued from the water and was reported to be in stable condition on board the Makin Island.

    "Cpl. Spears was a cherished member of our MEU (Marine Expeditionary Unit) family, and he fulfilled a key role in our aviation combat element,” said Col. Matthew Trollinger, commanding officer of the 11th Marine Expeditionary Unit, in a Marine Corps news release. “His absence will be felt throughout the unit. My heart goes out to his family, and they will remain in our thoughts and prayers,” he said.

    He was 13 days shy of his fourth anniversary in the Marines.
