Jack Daniels again helping military members get home for holidays
LYNCHBURG, Tenn. (AP) — The Jack Daniel Distillery is continuing a tradition of helping military service members and their families get home for the holidays.
The Tennessee-based distillery is again teaming with the military support group Armed Services YMCA for the project.
Distillery officials say the joint “Operation Ride Home” program will help nearly 2,000 junior-enlisted service members and relatives travel home this holiday season.
Since its founding in 2011, Operation Ride Home has provided financial assistance to active-duty, junior-enlisted military and their families to travel from their base of duty to their homes.
Jack Daniel’s is the flagship brand of Louisville, Kentucky-based Brown-Forman.
