Through its new patriotic mission, the beloved Texas-based grocery chain plans to distribute approximately 500 backpacks full of H-E-B favorites, offering troops a little taste of the Lone Star State.

"We are thankful for the commitment of the brave men and women who defend our nation's freedom and are honored to share a bit of home with our service members," Johnny Mojica, H-E-B Public Affairs, said in a news release. "This effort is one of more than 100 Independence Day celebrations H-E-B supports each year across Texas."

The backpack care package will be sent anywhere in the world. You can also throw in some extra love by leaving a message in the comments section. Your inspiring words will be included on a notecard in the package.

Packages are limited to the first 500 submissions and will be given away on a first come, first serve basis.
