TravelCenters of America displays a consistent commitment to military veterans. In addition to its mission to hire more veterans into its great careers, it also honors the sacrifice of active military personnel and veterans by encouraging restaurant guests to order a meal in support of the National Military Family Association (NMFA), a nonprofit that works to strengthen and protect military families.
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, GM of the Iron Skillet at the Petro Atlanta, GA location and a veteran of the United States 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.
