Much like your military value code, we have a code of values at Brown-Forman of integrity, respect, trust, teamwork and excellence. These aren’t just words on a page. These are time -honored values that guide us in the conduct of our day-to-day business and are deeply ingrained in our culture.
BRAVE is committed to increasing resources, developing programs and supporting community initiatives that will enhance the Brown-Forman Veteran experience, educate our employees, strengthen our brands and support Brown-Forman's overall commitment to being a military friendly company.

Jack Daniel’s and Armed Services YMCA have teamed up for several consecutive years to raise funds for Operation Ride Home, a campaign to help service members travel home to spend time with their families for the holidays. Jack Daniel’s donated $100,000 to kick off and promote the campaign. The donations are allocated by Armed Services YMCA to junior enlisted service members across the country who have financial needs. Brown-Forman employees also donated airline miles to the campaign to support these efforts. What began as a local effort led by Jack Daniel’s at the Armed Services YMCA in Fort Campbell, Kentucky, has grown into a national campaign. We are proud to lead this effort that brings families together during the holidays and supports service members nationwide.
