Pilot Flying J Honors US Military
KNOXVILLE, Ten. — With Veterans Day approaching, Pilot Flying J is reaching out to honor our military servicemen. From Nov 9 to Nov 15, the company will be buying a breakfast combo for all military veterans and active-duty servicemen alike. This offer is valid at all participating Flying J and Pilot Travel centers in the U.S. The offer includes any size coffee, as well as a free breakfast menu option. The free meal is available via the Pilot Flying J mobile app. This is Pilot Flying J's way to give back as well as to honor the servicemen and veterans who work in the professional trucking industry this veterans day.
As we move into the holiday season, Pilot Flying J is offering guests to their stores or travel centers the option to round up to the nearest dollar and donate the change to Wreaths Across America, a program that lays wreaths across headstones of fallen veterans across the country in honor of their service.
A quote from the founder of Pilot company, US Army Veteran James A. Haslam II, in regards to his company partnering with Wreaths Across America states, “On behalf of our 28,000 team members, we sincerely thank the men and women who’ve selflessly served our country. We appreciate Wreaths Across America’s mission of remember, honor and teach and invite our guests to partner with us in support of their goal to lay a wreath on every hero’s grave.”
This promotion will run now through Dec 31, 2020. In remembrance of hometown heroes, the company is donating $20,000 and contributing $20,000 to wreath laying ceremonies in Knoxville, Tennessee.
