Pilot to offer free meal for military service members and their families for Veterans Day


A nationwide truck stop chain will celebrate Veterans Day by buying a meal for military service members and their families.

From November 11 – 13, 2022, service members and their families are eligible for a free meal at more than 750 participating Pilot, Flying J and One9 Fuel Network locations across the U.S.

To qualify for the $12 meal credit, service members and family must be verified through ID.me in the myRewards Plus app.

Pilot says that this year, the $12 Veterans Day meal credit will be a rolling balance, allowing guests to use any remaining balance the next time they stop over Veterans Day weekend during the offer period.

Pilot will also celebrate the Veterans Day holiday by taking part in a purchase roundup campaign called the Call of Duty Endowment, which helps veterans transition to successful civilian careers after military service. From  October 31 through November 13, 2022, customers at Pilot, Flying J or One9 Fuel Network travel centers will have the option to round up their purchases to the nearest dollar amount. Pilot will donate 100% of the roundup amount to directly to the Call of Duty Endowment and will match the donations raised up to $100,000.

“Service members and their families give their all for our country and have incredible talents to offer in the civilian workforce upon leaving the military,” said Shameek Konar, CEO of Pilot Company. “The Call of Duty Endowment has helped more than 100,000 veterans and their family members find career opportunities that leverage their skills, and we are honored to join them in this endeavor. We are proud to employ veterans across our organization and to further our mission to Fuel Life’s Journeys by giving back and saying, ‘Thank you’ to everyone who’s served.”
