NASHVILLE, Tenn.– Tennessee whiskey maker Jack Daniel’s is donating more than $100,000 to pay for plane tickets and travel funds for soldiers at Fort Campbell, Ky., to spend the December holiday season with their families all over the country.
The distiller is also asking the public to make additional contributions that could help hundreds of cash-strapped soldiers who otherwise would be stuck at the post on the Tennessee-Kentucky state line. Donations can be made to the Operation Ride Home campaign online at www.jdoperationridehome.com.
I am not a Jack Daniels fan, my American Whiskey of choice is actually Wild Turkey (good enough for Hunter Thompson, good enough for me!) but man that’s a move that really puts the Gentleman in Gentleman Jack!
