(Tallahassee and Ocala, FL) This summer, when you purchase a Budweiser, Tri-Eagle Sales, the local Anheuser-Busch wholesaler, will donate a portion of sales to the Folds of Honor program. Folds of Honor is a non-profit organization that provides educational scholarships to spouses and children of America’s fallen or disabled service members.
Tri-Eagle Sales has released a commercial highlighting the company’s veteran employees and retail Folds of Honor badge program. The video features two veteran Tri-Eagle Sales employees delivering Budweiser to a local bar. When a former Marine orders a Budweiser, he is given a badge to write down the name of a fallen soldier. The scene pays tribute to our fallen heroes and recognizes all veterans.
“We wanted to showcase our veterans who help deliver Budweiser every day and our continued partnership with the Folds of Honor program. This is a true story that provides a glimpse of our team here and a Marine who honors a soldier who has made the ultimate sacrifice,” says Brittany Foster, Director of Marketing for Tri-Eagle Sales.
“Being able to give back to those who have already given so much is the least I could do to show my gratitude and respect for their sacrifices. As a former service member, I will never take them for granted or forget to show my appreciation,” says Russ King, former Marine featured in the Budweiser commercial.
Nationally, Anheuser-Busch will contribute one dollar for every case of patriotic cans sold from May 31 through July 4. All summer long, consumers can express American pride with Budweiser’s limited edition patriotic cans. The three new limited edition cans featuring a red, white, and blue design emblazoned with stars and stripes celebrate American freedom and the start of a historic summer. As a brand that has supported the military for over 100 years, Budweiser is continuing its decade-long partnership with Folds of Honor, having donated $18 million, translating to more than 3,600 scholarships for military dependents served by Folds of Honor to date.
