Pilot Company’s Veterans Day Tribute – Free Meals and $1M Fundraiser


October 27, 2023

To honor the contributions of veterans and military members across the country, Pilot, Flying J, and One9 are celebrating Veterans Day with two gigantic, celebratory promotions. 

Pilot supports veterans and their post-service careers

When you visit any participating Pilot, Flying J, or One9 location now through November 12 and round up your purchase to the nearest dollar, Pilot Company will donate 100% of your donation to the Call of Duty Endowment. The Call of Duty Endowment supports organizations that prepare military veterans for high-quality civilian careers. The endowment also works to promote the value that veterans bring to their workplaces. 

The partnership between Pilot and the Call of Duty Endowment is a long-standing one. In the past 4 years, with your help, Pilot has raised over $3 million for the endowment. That means a whopping 5,500 veterans have been supported in finding high-quality careers after their military service.

This year they’re hoping to serve even more, setting their sights on a $1 million donation.

Free Veterans Day gift from Pilot

Pilot, Flying J, and One9 have a unique Veterans Day weekend gift for military members, veterans, and their families. Anyone who has verified their military status through via the myRewards app can claim a free meal credit, which is valued at $12. 

You can use your meal credit on the variety of foods and beverages available Pilot, Flying J, and One9 travel centers. If you don’t use your entire credit in one purchase, you can use the remaining balance at another time during the weekend.
