Truck stop to serve free meals to military members on July 4

One of the nation’s largest truck stop chains will be offering free meals to current and former military members to celebrate the Fourth of July holiday.

On Saturday, July 4, TravelCenters of America will be serving free meals to military members at at select quick service restaurants as well as at Country Pride and Iron Skillet locations.

Any one who has served in the military is eligible for the complimentary meal and need only show their server proof of service, which could include: U.S. Uniformed Services ID card, current Leave and Earnings Statement (LES), veterans organization membership card, photograph in uniform, DD214 form, a citation or commendation.

“We are grateful for all the men and women who sacrifice their lives for our freedom and are proud to serve them every day,” said Barry Richards, president of TA. “We enjoy using America’s birthday as an opportunity to show our appreciation and remind them of the true heroes they are.”

Some Country Pride and Iron Skillet restaurants will also be displaying Fallen Soldier Tables in honor of those who lost their lives in military service.
