More than 3,100 carwashes in four countries will partake in the one-day event, offering free washes to veterans and active duty military on Nov. 11, stated the release.

Sheetz will also offer free six-inch sandwiches and drinks to veterans and active service personnel at all of its locations, reported the release.

“We were so excited to hear from Scott Soisson at Sheetz that [the company] would be joining us on Veterans Day,” said Mark Curtis, president of the Grace for Vets Board, in the release. “[It’s] fantastic that a major operator like Sheetz wants to honor those who have served or are serving in the military in this way.”
