The free meals will be available at any participating TA and Petro sit-down restaurant, the company stated in a press release.

“We are looking forward once again to honoring and thanking the many truck drivers who are also military veterans,” said Tom O’Brien, President and CEO of TravelCenters, in the press release. “They served our country in the military and continue to do so in their current roles as professional drivers.”

On November 11, anyone who is a veteran of the armed forces and holds a CDL can receive a complimentary meal of their choice (up to a $15 value) by simply showing proof of service to their server prior to ordering their meal, the release stated.
