Last week, we were proud to announce that American Airlines is now the official airline of the USO. And their new Join Us website has a section devoted entire to the Military. Now they’ve launched two new commercials! From the website: “As a public gesture of gratitude and a tribute to those in uniform, veterans and their families, American Airlines is introducing two new television commercials. Entitled, “Thank You,” and “Putting Them First,” the new TV spots aim to emotionally connect viewers with active military service members as they travel.”
We think these are just terrific and invite you to learn more about the AA/USO Gift Card and other ways that you can support the Troops through American Airlines. These commercials won’t air on television until tomorrow, but in the meantime we hope you take the time to watch and share them this holiday weekend.
