Coca-Cola cans get new look to celebrate USO

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH/CNN) – Coca-Cola is changing up the look of its soda cans to celebrate 75 years of partnership with the USO.

The new “I’m proud to be an American” cans are red, white and blue, and will honor members of the military.

The cans and packs will be in stores through July 4th. The song lyric and patriotic design will be on 16-ounce cans as well as 12-ounce cans that come in 20, 24 and 35-packs.

Coca-Cola is the latest company to adopt USA-themed packaging. Anheuser-Busch even changed the name of “Budweiser” to “America” — the name change will last through the presidential election in November.

The limited edition cans also promote the “campaign to connect,” which aims to get people to send one million messages of support to members of the armed forces.
