"As a family-owned business, White Castle is dedicated to honoring past and current members of the U.S. military for their commitment and sacrifice to safeguard our freedom. This is just one small way we can share our gratitude to these brave individuals. Their service to our country is noteworthy. It's our turn to serve them."
