Some lucky veterans and current armed forces members were thanked for their service in a unique way.

Honda Helpful Guys in Blue took over the Valero gas station on the corner of 190th Street and Prairie Avenue, surprising veterans and active military men and women by offering free gas this past Memorial Day weekend.

Usually, Honda Helpful Guys fill up tanks only in Honda cars, but for this event they gave away one full tank to each armed forces member and veteran, no matter what car they drove. Honda says it’s act of kindness to celebrate the people who served and the values Americans hold as a nation.

Some Honda drivers who pulled into this Valero also lucked out with free gas thanks to Honda’s big, free-gas tanker.

The SoCal Honda Dealer’s Helpful campaign aims to bring random acts of helpfulness to unsuspecting residents all over Southern California.
