For Veterans Day, the Pilot Company is offering military service members and their families a complimentary meal at over 750 participating Pilot, Flying J and One9 Fuel Network travel centers nationwide. The company is also inviting guests to round up and raise funds for the Call of Duty Endowment, a nonprofit organization dedicated to assisting veterans in transitioning to successful civilian careers post-military service.

"We owe our nation's veterans and their families our gratitude and are honored to offer them a free meal in our stores to celebrate Veterans Day," said Brian Ferguson, Air Force veteran and chief merchant at Pilot Company. "It's great to have organizations like the Call of Duty Endowment dedicated to helping find opportunities for veterans to lead and excel in their careers after the military. We are proud of our veterans at Pilot Company, and I am grateful to my fellow veterans for their service and sacrifice. Happy Veterans Day."

Over Veterans Day weekend, November 10-12, service members and their families verified through ID.me in the myRewards Plus app will receive a free meal credit valued up to $12. The credit can be redeemed on hot and cold deli items, popular snacks, fountain drinks, Pilot coffee and meals at participating on-site restaurants. Any remaining balance from the one-time $12 credit can be used on subsequent visits during Veterans Day weekend.

The round up campaign is running from October 23 through November 12 and invites visitors to round up purchases to the nearest dollar. Pilot Company will donate 100% of the proceeds directly to the Call of Duty Endowment. The company aims to raise $1 million and will match donations up to $100,000 to help the Call of Duty Endowment place more than 1,600 service members and their families into successful careers.

Since 2019, Pilot Company and its guests have raised over $3 million in donations for the Call of Duty Endowment, resulting in more than 5,500 veterans finding post-military careers.

Other charitable announcements this week include Maverik launching its Round Up Your Change program in partnership with Feeding America and Volta Oil raising over $170,000 for the Alzheimer’s Association of Massachusetts/New Hampshire.
