May is Military Appreciation Month
This month is quite special for our small family, and our extended family members. With 3 generations of military members on each side, we love to celebrate the fact that many family members have decided to serve our country. Each May, we make a point of remembering those family members that have passed on, and the family members that are still currently serving (like me). With my own little cousin now part of the Coast Guard, the serving proudly continues.
It’s been 14 years since I first enlisted. I remember those first years when I anticipated what would be needed from me, and what I would experience within my long-term career as a munitions specialist. With 2 deployments under my belt, I can’t help but appreciate any brand that supports all of the sacrifice my little family and I have experienced. This month, Chevy is thanking military members and veterans by offering amazing discounts on their cars and trucks. They have been advertising about these opportunities, and I couldn’t help but fall in love with this commercial:
These automobile discounts that Chevy’s offering this month are just the tip of the iceberg. #ChevySalutes military members all year round:
- They work with Achilles International Freedom Team of Wounded Veterans to assist wounded veterans with training for marathons
- Cell Phones for Soldiers offers gently used cell phones to deployed military members so they can stay connected to their families while serving overseas.
- Visit the Chevy Salutes website to learn more information on how they are supporting Military Appreciation Month.
