BALTIMORE (WJZ)—Coca Cola is paying tribute to the nation’s Armed Forces members with the debut of their new patriotic cans.

The cans feature the classic “I’m Proud To Be An American” song lyric and is designed in red white and blue.

The soda company–who is celebrating their 75th year partnering with the United Service Organizations (USO)–says the design, which is available on 16-ounce cans and 20, 24 and 35 packages of 12-ounce Coca-Cola, was a year in the making, and it includes a wavy U.S. flag, the USO and Coca-Cola logos, the “Campaign to Connect” website and the patriotic song lyric.

The cans are just one of the many ways Coca Cola is paying tribute to the Armed Forces this year.

“Since the organization’s very beginning in 1941, the USO has been near and dear to us. Our relationship is now part of our heritage, our DNA. The patriotic graphics on special 16 oz. cans and multiple club packs are a small way of saying thanks to the USO for all they do,” said Erika von Heiland Strader, director, Community Marketing, Coca-Cola North America. “On behalf of all our Coca-Cola associates, we congratulate the USO on 75 years of connecting service members to their family, home and country!”

The cans will be in stores until July 4th.
