Nationwide Beverage Salutes Troops

Corona, Calif.-based Nationwide Beverage Bottling Corp. is joining forces with "We Thank Our Troops," a San Diego-based organization, in supporting the men and women of the United States Armed Forces.

Steve Rice, president and CEO of Nationwide, said, "It was with pleasure that our company helped sponsor a recent dinner in San Diego for a group of Marines receiving treatment at Balboa Naval Medical Center for wounds suffered while on duty in Iraq. While we are enjoying the amazingly successful introduction of our new flavored water products, KoKomo and Agua Sabores, we remain aware of the sacrifices being made by our Armed Forces in the Persian Gulf. It is for this reason that Nationwide Beverage Bottling has become a full corporate sponsor of the “We Thank Our Troops” organization. By working with We Thank Our Troops, we can help our nation focus upon the role that the young men and women of our military services play in protecting our country and in helping the people of other countries fulfill their own dreams of democracy."

To further underscore the company's commitment to honor the nation's combat troops, Nationwide Beverage Bottling is donating 72 cases of bottled water to the Armed Services YMCA for the Medical Hold Platoon at Balboa Naval Medical Center.

We Thank Our Troops provides care packages of much needed food, personal hygiene and other items to troops serving in harm's way in Iraq and to those hospitalized here at home for treatment of wounds received in the field of battle. For more information, visit
