MCLEAN, Va., Nov. 9, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- The nation's largest online military community and a premier clothing company have joined together to offer a special discount in honor of Veterans Day and Military Family Month.
Military.com and Banana Republic have teamed up to offer servicemembers, veterans and their families a 50% discount on three full-priced items when they shop at Banana Republic stores November 12-15th. *
Military.com features many military discounts online in their discount center, but the partnership with Banana Republic is unique because it is being promoted exclusively through Military.com to reach the audience of current and former servicemembers and their families.
The discount, offered on Military.com, is a part of Banana Republic's "Our Duty to You" program to support military personnel and their families in transitioning to civilian lives as well as supporting their apparel needs for their current jobs or their job search efforts. As part of this program, Military personnel and their families will receive 15% off their full-priced purchases through the end of the year.
"As the country comes together to celebrate our Armed Forces and their families during Military Family Month and Veterans Day, we are once again humbled by the selflessness of US military personnel," said Jack Calhoun, president of Banana Republic. "It is our hope that the 'Our Duty to You' program will support veterans and members of the military in their transition to civilian life."
Military.com President and retired Navy Admiral, T McCreary, said, "Veterans Day and Military Family Month are the ideal time to pay tribute to those who are serving and have served. Banana Republic has obviously put a lot of thought and effort into how they can best honor our servicemembers and help them dress for success in civilian life at the same time."
