Travis Exchange rewarding military brats who "purple up" on April 18 with free treats

TRAVIS AIR FORCE BASE, Calif. – What’s pint-sized, wears purple and is tough enough to meet the challenges of a military upbringing? Military brats.

On April 18, the Army and Air Force Exchange Service at Travis Air Force Base, California, will celebrate “Purple Up Day,” a worldwide recognition of the strength and sacrifice of military children, by offering free treats to any child who wears purple to participating Exchange restaurants.

“With frequent moves, parental deployments and an ever-changing peer group, being a military brat can be difficult,” said Flor Payton, Exchange general manager. “The resiliency of military children amid such challenges is an inspiration, and the Travis Exchange salutes their service on ‘Purple Up Day.’”

Any child 18 or younger who wears purple is eligible to receive a free treat while supplies last. Treats vary by location and may come in the form of a side, fountain drink, dessert or other item. This offer is valid April 18 only. Participating Travis AFB Exchange restaurants include:

  • Taco Bell – Cinnamon twist.
  • Starbucks – Cake pop.
  • Charley’s Philly Steaks – Small lemonade.
  • Burger King – Ice cream cone.
  • Subway – Two cookies.
  • Arby’s – Chocolate chip cookie.
  • Baskin Robbins – Kid’s cone.
  • Popeye’s Express – Free tender strip.
  • All other restaurants – Free small or kid’s size soft drink.

“Purple Up Day” is held annually during Month of the Military Child, which recognizes the contributions of warfighters’ children to the armed forces community. The color purple symbolizes the combined colors of all military branches: Army green, Navy blue, Marine red, Coast Guard blue and Air Force blue.
