Sour Mash Whiskey Helping to Send Soldiers Home for the Holidays


With all of the gloom and doom bad news that I usually write about, I couldn’t help but take the opportunity to write about something positive for a change.

Jack Daniels Distilleries has announced that they are donating over $100,000 to help pay for the air fare and other travel expenses for soldiers at Fort Campbell, Kentucky to spend the Christmas holiday with their families.  The company’s donations were made through the Operation Ride Home campaign.

Fort Campbell is the home of the 101st Airborne Division which recently returned after serving a year in Afghanistan.  Realizing that many of the battle worn soldiers were financially unable to afford to fly to their homes for the holiday, Jack Daniels donated $101,000 to Operation Ride Home in honor of the Division’s name.

Joining Jack Daniels is country music star Craig Morgan who just happens to be a veteran from the 101st Airborne.  Morgan has recorded a video to help encourage others to donate to the cause.  The video can be viewed and the Jack Daniels’ website.

Jack Daniels Operation Ride Home is accepting donations through December 16.  I would hope and pray that some of you out there would realize how much we owe these men and women who lay their lives on the line for freedom and will go to the link provided above and donate so that they may be able to spend the Christmas holiday with their families.

Thank you.
