About 300 7-Eleven stores across the U.S. will offer military personnel and veterans a free car wash on Veterans Day, Nov. 11.

This is the fourth year the company has offered the complimentary service to servicemen and women. “The Works” service includes undercarriage blast, pre-soak, wheel wash, foam conditioner, Rain-X surface protectant rinse and power dry, 7-Eleven said this week.

Last year, 7-Eleven gave away 1,500 car washes on Veterans Day.

“It would be nice if they did show some indication of their military affiliation. But we will not insist if they tell us they are military or former military, but don’t have that kind of ID with them,” spokeswoman Margaret Chabris said.

7-Eleven has a history of service to the military, evidenced in its veteran hiring practices, veteran franchise program and charitable support of military families, the company said.

Below are the 7-Eleven stores in the Charlotte area offering the free washes.
