One of the great things about San Diego, where Milton’s started, is the many veterans and men and women in uniform who are a vital part of the community. Today, San Diego is hosting the first ever Carrier Classic where the Michigan State Spartans are set to take on The University of North Carolina Tar Heels in the first-ever college basketball game aboard a United States Navy Aircraft Carrier – The USS Carl Vinson.
One of the little known facts about Milton’s is that our products are served and sold in military commissaries here in the US and around the world. Our bread in particular is fresh baked locally in Asia, Europe, and in the Persian Gulf, and served to our men and women in uniform. Many veterans returning home from deployment write to us to find where our products are available locally in their neighborhood.
As we reflect on our blessings, we offer special tribute to our military servicemen and women. This Veterans Day, while our men and women overseas feel apart from their loved ones, take some time to thank them for their sacrifice. We say thank you to the Air Force, Navy, Marines, Army, National Guard, and Coast Guard personnel who protect our freedoms and keep our nation secure.
We’ll keep the ovens on, and the bread baking – and look forward to your return.
