This Veterans Day, we are honored to pay tribute to all members of the Anheuser-Busch family who are military veterans or currently serving in America’s armed forces.
To mark this occasion, we have produced a limited run of aluminum Budweiser America bottles for our veterans and currently serving A-B colleagues. These special edition bottles are not available for public purchase, as we have created this line as a small gesture of gratitude for the courage and service of our colleagues.
“It’s truly humbling to work alongside our military veterans at Anheuser-Busch,” said Sandro Bassili, vice president of People at Anheuser-Busch, “which is why our colleagues across several departments banded together to produce this small gesture of our appreciation.”
Anheuser-Busch has been a proud employer of veterans throughout our long history. Over the years, more than 5,500 total A-B employees have served in World War I, World War II, Korea, Vietnam, Desert Storm, Iraq, Afghanistan and many other deployments. Together with our community and business partners, we have proudly supported our troops at home and abroad by providing resources, fundraising for veterans and their families, and through many other activities over the years.
“Our colleagues’ sacrifice and dedication is something that genuinely inspires us. It’s why supporting America’s veterans and those serving in our armed forces has been so highly valued at Anheuser-Busch for generations, and we are very proud of that,” said Doug Bailey, vice president of Industry Affairs at Anheuser-Busch.
Today, we would like to recognize the dedication of all our A-B veterans who have done so much to help realize our dream of a better world. This Bud’s especially for you.
The land of the free, because of the brave.
With every waving flag, with every hand-covered heart, we declare our gratitude. To those who have walked the line to defend our freedom. To those who have served to protect our way of life. To those who have fought to keep us safe. America thanks you.
For your service, courage and sacrifice, men and women of our armed forces, this Bud’s for you.
Proud to serve those who serve.
