A Texas Based Grocery Company Is Honoring Veterans With A Special Trip to The Nation's Capital.

In 2010, Brookshire Grocery Co. embarked on a mission to escort a group of World War II veterans to Washington D.C. to visit the World War II Memorial along with several other points of interest.

“Brookshire’s World War II Heroes Flight” first took place on May 11 & 12, 2010, with 38 veterans and 19 others, mostly Brookshire’s employees, to assist them. The endeavor was fully funded and coordinated by Brookshire’s, at no cost to the veterans.

Brookshire Grocery Company (BGC) will be accepting applications from military veterans until June 28 for an all-expenses paid trip to Washington D.C. to honor veterans for their service and sacrifices.

BGC is looking to fill 25 spots on its trip as part of the 20th Brookshire’s and Super 1 Foods Heroes Flight program. The group will visit the WWII Memorial, U.S. Capitol with Congressman Nathaniel Moran, Arlington National Cemetery, the Air and Space Museum and other memorials.

To date, more than 500 veterans have made the trip.


Company employees fly with the veterans to provide assistance and help veterans have a safe, memorable and rewarding experience. World War II, Korean, Vietnam and War on Terror veterans are encouraged to apply for one of the limited slots available.

BGC will be accepting applications for the Oct. 21-Oct. 23 trip through June 28.

For more details on how to apply, visit the Brookshire's Heroes Flight Program application website and get signed up for a chance to see our nation's capital or sign your veteran up for this tremendous honor.

Just like BGC, we here at Townsquare Media thank you for your service and sacrifice.
