Veteran’s Night at Flyway

Oftentimes, because of its proximity to Thanksgiving, Veteran’s Day gets slightly overshadowed by families planning their travels, choosing the turkey, and wrapping up work projects for the holidays. But not at Arkansas Capital! We wanted to create a small event where people stop for a minute, take a breath, drink a beer, and remember our veterans. To celebrate those who have selflessly served our country, we gathered together friends, family, and strangers to meet at Flyway Brewing. The plan was to buy each veteran that walked through the door a beer as a small token of our appreciated for his or her service. But we thought why stop there?

They made a donation to Veteran Villages of America – a non-profit that connects veterans in need with housing and jobs.
