Drinking beer in a way that supports veterans and vets organizations? That’s something we can get behind!
D.G. Yuengling & Son, America’s oldest brewery, has come up with another way to support the nation’s veterans as part of its Stars & Stripes program. The brewer unveiled a new look for the 12- and 24-ounce cans that hold the brewery’s flagship beer, Yuengling Lager, on Tuesday.
The limited-edition cans feature a desert camouflage print and the logo of Team Red, White & Blue, a nonprofit organization that aims to connect veterans to their community through physical and social activity. Included on the can is a code through which beer drinkers can contribute to Team Red, White, and Blue (Team RWB) and help veterans.
Team RWB’s mission is to enrich veterans’ lives. More than a quarter-million active-duty servicemembers transition out of the military every year. Many of them suffer from a myriad of challenges including depression, isolation, obesity, and many other health issues, as well as feeling a lack of purpose.
