Armed Forces Day Honored by GOFoods Global with new GO Forces Program for Military, Veterans, Law Enforcement, Emergency Services and Seniors
GOFoods Global's mission to feed and prosper American families makes GO Tour 2012 stop on Armed Forces Day, the day set aside by President Harry S. Truman as a single holiday for citizens to come together and thank those who support the United States of America in patriotic service. GOFoods Global offers storable meals that can be served, saved, and shared for up to 25 years, and the company's new program, GO Forces, is gifting complimentary wholesale membership for those who serve our country.
SALT LAKE CITY, May 18, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- In honor of the Armed Forces National Holiday on May 19, 2012, and in conjunction with GO Tour 2012 to feed and prosper American families, today GOFoods is pleased to announce GO Forces, a new program designed to give back and feed the freedoms of our military, veterans, law enforcement, fire, emergency services, and seniors—those who have given so much to our country.
As part of the GO Forces program, eligible individuals will receive a waived wholesale membership fee (regularly $29.95 per year), special shopping days, and additional discounts and gifts through special coupon codes throughout the year. Details about the program can be found at http://www.GOForces.org.
President Harry S. Truman led the effort to establish a single holiday for citizens to come together and thank our military members for their patriotic service in support of our country. In an excerpt from the Presidential Proclamation of Feb. 27, 1950, Mr. Truman stated:
"Armed Forces Day, Saturday, May 20, 1950, marks the first combined demonstration by America's defense team of its progress, under the National Security Act, towards the goal of readiness for any eventuality. It is the first parade of preparedness by the unified forces of our land, sea, and air defense."
Since its cause-minded celebrity launch in February this year, GoTour 2012 has traveled to 18 American cities to share a message of feeding and prospering families with readiness and food preparedness through GOFoods Global meals.
"We feel that the Armed Forces Day motto of keeping America 'strong and secure, united in purpose, and steadfast in service' aligns with the purpose of the GOFoods Foundation, which is to give back to our communities and support American families," said Brad Stewart, president of GOFoods Global. "To show our appreciation for the protection, freedoms, and hard-earned wisdom these individuals unselfishly provide us, the GO Forces program is a small but heartfelt way to say thank you."
GOFoods Global warmly extends GO Forces membership to the following recipients:
- Members of the uniformed services and adult dependents (Air Force, Army, Coast Guard, Marine Corps, Navy; active duty and both active and inactive reserve and National Guard)
- Retired members of the uniformed services and adult dependents (Air Force, Army, Coast Guard, Marine Corps, Navy)
- Foreign exchange service members on permanent duty with the Department of Defense
- Civilian employees of the Department of Defense (appropriated, non-appropriated, or retired) and adult dependents
- American Red Cross personnel serving overseas with the U.S. military
- Department of Defense dependent schoolteachers and adult dependents
- Disabled American veterans

We honor you—and we fully embrace the honor system by letting you govern your qualification and eligibility in this wonderful program.
Brad Stewart says he truly believes those who serve the country need and deserve our extra special attention and help in these challenging times.
"Thank you for your unwavering commitment to serving our freedoms and elevating our way of life, and for joining our mission to feed and prosper families everywhere," said Brad Stewart. "We are delighted to help feed your personal freedoms through serving, saving, and sharing GOFoods—and the GO Forces Program is our small way of feeding and prospering you!"
The GOFoods Foundation initiative continues to give back by donating one package of food for every ten purchased to local communities. This program and mission are very personal to GOFoods Global because serving for freedom has been a way of life for generations of their associates, family, friends, and neighbors.
