It’s been years since I have lived down the street from a 7-Eleven and enjoyed a “Big Gulp” or a Slurpee. Oh how I miss the days of living on Long Island and having 7-Eleven within a five minute drive for those snack cravings.

Even more so I wish I lived close enough to one so that my husband and I could partake in the below gracious offer from 7-Eleven:

In Their Words

“This Veteran’s Day (Friday, Nov. 11, 2011 or 11/11/11), 7-Eleven, Inc. is saluting active, veteran and retired U.S. military personnel and their immediate families with free, small Slurpee® drinks between 11 a.m. and 7 p.m.  Presenting proof of current or former U.S. military service during that time is all that’s required to receive a free Slurpee drink on Veteran’s Day”.

In addition customers who donate a $1  can know that as part of the Operation Thank You campaign their donation will go towards sending a care package to a soldier via the USO.

In addition, for troops and their families stationed at 11 U.S. military bases, 7-Eleven has planned a special treat.  Slurpee trailers will take America’s favorite frozen carbonated drink to them during visits between Nov. 8 and Nov. 12 to the following locations:

  • Bolling Air Force Base in Washington, D.C.
  • Langley Air Force Base in Hampton, Va.
  • Naval  Station Norfolk in Norfolk, Va.
  • Naval Air Station Oceana in Virginia Beach, Va.
  • Andrews Air Force Base in Camp Springs, Md.
  • MacDill Air Force Base in Tampa, Fla.
  • Fort Hood Army Base in Killeen, Texas
  • Fort Carson Army Base in Colorado Springs, Colo.
  • Marine Corps. Base Camp Pendleton in Oceanside, Calif.
  • Naval Base San Diego in San Diego, Calif.
