Tennessee whiskey maker Jack Daniel's is donating more than $100,000 to pay for plane tickets and travel funds for soldiers at Fort Campbell, Ky., to spend the December holiday season with their families all over the country.
The distiller is also asking the public to make additional contributions that could help hundreds of cash-strapped soldiers who otherwise would be stuck at the post on the Tennessee-Kentucky state line. Donations can be made to the Operation Ride Home campaign online at www.jdoperationridehome.com.See Jack Daniel's Funds Travel Expenses for Soldiers for more.
H/T to Jay over at MArooned.
The soldiers stationed there come from all over the country, but travel expenses can be a huge burden on single soldiers or young families with children. This is really very nice for Jack Daniels.ReplyDelete
