The cans, which debuted Monday, are a throwback to the olive drab cans produced by Anheuser-Busch, the parent company of Budweiser, during World War II.

On its website, Anheuser-Busch said the cans would remain on store shelves through Veterans Day.

For every case sold, the company will donate $1 to Folds of Honor, an organization that provides scholarships to spouses and children of America’s fallen or disabled service members. The donations will come from sales made through Nov. 15, Anheuser-Busch said, and will be capped at $25,000.
