Budweiser has released an Independence Day ad honoring our veterans. The ad features Adam Driver, a veteran, who is now an actor playing the role of Kylo Ren in Star Wars Episodes 7 and 8.
Budweiser’s YouTube channel says this about their ad:
This summer, we’ve been honoring those who protect our freedom to dream. So we delivered a life-changing scholarship to a family who has sacrificed for their country and for each other with the help of Folds of Honor and Adam Driver. #ThisBudsForYou
Since 2011, we’ve awarded scholarships to more than 2,000 families of fallen or injured veterans through our partnership with Folds of Honor. And earlier this year, we honored another group of veterans with a surprise befitting their service: https://youtu.be/yzMSzLkOkJA
Breitbart reported that Budweiser has released a new ad in which “Star Wars” actor Adam Driver, a veteran himself, surprises a veteran by delivering a scholarship to his daughter in person.
U.S. Army veteran John Williams sustained a debilitating injury while training for Operation Desert Storm. Like him, Driver was also injured shortly before he was deployed, putting an end to his military career. That’s likely why Budweiser chose Driver to surprise Williams by showing up at his home to give his daughter, Hayley Grace Williams, a scholarship to nursing school.
