Most troops would agree that one of the most difficult adjustments of being overseas is missing the warmth of home, family, and friends. Care packages can bring a touch of comfort to remind the troops that the citizens they serve are thinking of them. The USO has been delivering care packages to troops through the program, Operation USO Care Package for many years and this November, participating 7-Eleven stores nationwide will launch Operation Thank You to help the USO send care packages overseas by giving guests the opportunity to purchase donation cards to aid in this effort.
7-Eleven’s Operation Thank You will honor the service of active, veteran and retired members of the military and their immediate families by offering a free small Slurpee drink from 11AM to 7PM on 11/11/11. In addition, 7-Eleven’s fleet of Slurpee Trucks will be visiting 11 military bases across the country to bring the frosty beverage directly to those stationed around the United States.
