TravelCenters is encouraging its customers to help support both active military members and veterans this summer.
TravelCenters of America has now launched a six week promotion to honor the country’s military. The company is encouraging customers to visit TA and Petro Stopping Centers during this summer driving season to show their support of military heroes. During these six weeks, TravelCenters is once again honoring the sacrifice of active military personnel and veterans by asking restaurant guests to order a meal in support of the National Military Family Association (NMFA).
From June 28 to August 5, participating Country Pride and Iron Skillet locations will donate $1.00 to the NMFA for each entrée ordered from a select group of menu items.
“Nearly one in three truck drivers is a military veteran,” noted Tom O’Brien, president and CEO of TravelCenters. “These brave individuals served our nation in the armed forces and continue to serve by safely delivering goods across our country.”
In addition, on July 4, active and retired service members will receive a free meal chosen from a menu of signature favorites.
“As a veteran myself, I am proud our company honors those who have served our country,” said Paul Weaver, general manager of the Iron Skillet at the Petro Atlanta location and a veteran of the U.S. Navy, having served 20 years. “This observance allows diners to enjoy a meal and offer a thanks for the sacrifices made to secure our freedom.”
