Davis won this prize by pulling off a game tab on his Subway drink, which he bought during a stop for lunch back in August.

He and some friends had just finished working out and grabbed a meal at Subway in the Exchange food court.

“I just didn’t think anything of it after I pulled the tab,” Davis said. “I thought, ‘OK, cool, what’s the catch?’”

The Fort Huachuca Exchange honored Davis at a short ceremony Nov. 17. He will take his trip sometime next year.

The sweepstakes is part of the Exchange’s 125th anniversary celebration, which commemorates its “we go where you go” mission.

“The Exchange is thrilled to reward Pvt. Davis with the trip of a lifetime,” Fort Huachuca Exchange General Manager Jeff Hyatt said. “The Exchange is honored to serve Warfighters during all stages of life—from young Soldiers such as Pvt.  Davis to retirees. It is truly a privilege to stand alongside Pvt. Davis and all who serve.”
