In Honor Of A 75 Year Partnership with the United Service Organizations...

The aisles at your local grocery store are getting very patriotic.

Coca-Cola is now selling a red, white and blue can in select grocery and convenience stories.

"It's our way of celebrating our partnership with Coca-Cola and helping everyone show their support for our service members," says the USO's director of marketing.

In a nod to nostalgia and patriotic pride, Coca-Cola this past weekend kicked off a flurry of events that pay tribute to the nation's Armed Forces members and the USO's 75th anniversary (which also marks the 75th anniversary of the company's partnership with the USO).

The USO has launched a heartfelt campaign – "Campaign to Connect" – to show service members how much Americans support them (check out the campaign website).

I personally love it!!! What's more American than Coca Cola? And what's more American than honoring our service members, past and present? The specially-designed cans will be available in 16-ounce cans as well as 20, 24 and 35 packs of 12-ounce cans through the Fourth of July weekend.
