    General Motors Donates New Chevrolet Silverado HD to Military Wounded Veterans Group

     
    During the first quarter of this month's Army-Navy game, GM CEO Dan Akerson presented a 2011 Chevrolet Silverado to the Freedom Team of Wounded Veterans.
    The Freedom Team of Wounded Veterans is a part of Achilles International, which provides support to athletes and veterans with disabilities in gyms, parks, and tracks all over the world. The Freedom Team of Wounded Veterans, formed at Walter Reed Medical Center, is dedicated to inspiring wounded veterans to complete a marathon, but stresses “achievable accomplishment” of any form. The Silverado HD will be used by the Freedom Team to transport athletes and equipment necessary to compete in marathons across the country.
    Other Chevrolet efforts to support military personnel include a recent donation of 11,000 hours of prepaid calling cards to troops serving in Afghanistan.
    The donation was made possible by Chevrolet and the GM Military Discount program, which collected more than 20,000 cell phones at Chevrolet locations and events across the country. The phones were donated to Cell Phones for Soldiers, a non-profit organization that recycles cell phones and uses the proceeds to provide calling cards for troops serving overseas.
    The GM Military Discount  is offered to all active and US Reserve members – and their spouses covering the
    Air Force, Army, Navy, Marines, National Guard and Coast Guard. Discounts range based on the suggested retail price of the vehicle purchased. The program also offers an additional $750 discount for members of USAA. Both the GM Military Discount and USAA member discount are available on all Chevrolet models, except the Corvette ZR-1.
