Operation Ride Home is an Armed Services YMCA program which reunites families at the holidays by providing financial assistance to currently serving junior enlisted military and their families at our 13 branches to travel from their place of military service for the holidays. Since Operation Ride Home started in 2011, more than 7,200 junior enlisted service members and their family members have traveled for the holidays. Reconnecting military families during this special time of year is one small way Operation Ride Home is strengthening military families.
“Operation Ride Home continues to grow each year, and Jack Daniel’s does a fantastic job executing it. We’re blessed to be part of this relationship,” William French, President/CEO of the Armed Services YMCA, said. “Operation Ride Home is one of the ways we take care of those who are taking care of us and defending our nation.”
