So help me God.” – United States military oath of enlistment –

“Too many veterans across the country, including many right here in our local communities in Pennsylvania, are struggling,” said Kim Hertzog, Public Relations Manager, Turkey Hill Minit Markets. “We are honored to be able to thank them for their service and sacrifices by contributing to the Pennsylvania Veterans Foundation’s mission to support them both directly and in partnership with other veterans’ organizations.”

As another way of thanking those who have served, Turkey Hill is observing Veterans Day (Wednesday, November 11) by offering all veterans and active duty personnel a free 12-ounce coffee or cappuccino, as well as a free car wash at Turkey Hill’s car wash locations.
