Pilot Flying J, the largest operator of travel centers and travel plazas in North America, is giving away a year of free coffee and commemorative travel mugs to Congressional Medal of Honor recipients at the Medal of Honor Knoxville Convention.
As a Hero Sponsor for this year’s convention, Pilot Flying J is offering the free coffee in order to continue to show its support of and appreciation for the U.S. military and the Medal of Honor recipients.
“As an Army veteran myself, I understand and appreciate the sacrifices these heroes have made,” said Jim Haslam, Pilot Corp. founder and chairman. “Free coffee is a unique way Pilot Flying J can show the Medal of Honor recipients our gratitude for their brave actions.”
Pilot Flying J frequently implements new programs to improve the driving and working experience for veteran drivers. Last September, Pilot Flying J gave free gas to nearly 1,600 veterans, active soldiers and their families for Operation Tank Full of Love. The Knoxville. Tenn.-headquartered company also has celebrated Veteran’s Day by offering free services for professional drivers who are veterans and offers favorable employment provisions for those in the military.
“It’s a privilege to be able to give back to our service men and women,” Haslam said. “They do so much for our country, and Pilot Flying J is proud to be able to do something for them.”
