Jack Daniel's and the Armed Services YMCA Operation Ride Home program have helped over 6000 military service members make it home for the holidays. Operation Ride Home provides financial assistance to eligible active duty junior-enlisted military and their families to travel from their duty station, back home to spend time with their loved ones. Reconnecting military families during this special time of year is what Operation Ride Home is all about. Jack Daniels and the Armed Services YMCA Operation Ride Home Program have been strengthening military families since 2011.
Last year, in Hampton Roads, we sent 128 families home utilizing over $45,000 contributed by Jack Daniel's. This year, we are hoping to reunite even more military families. Do you need a ride home? Applications must be received by November 8 (Thanksgiving Deadline) or December 6 (Christmas/New Year's Deadline).
