National Military Appreciation Month At Jeff Gordon Chevrolet

Congress designated May as National Military Appreciation Month in 1999 to ensure the nation was given the opportunity to publicly demonstrate their appreciation for the sacrifices and successes made by our servicemembers - past and present
May was selected because it has most days set aside for celebrating and commemorating our military's achievements. These days include Loyalty Day, which was established in 1921, Victory in Europe (VE) Day commemorating the end of WWII in Europe on May 8, 1945, Armed Forces Day created in 1949, Military Spouse Appreciation Day established in 1984, and of course the best known of the May holidays, Memorial Day.
Memorial Day, is the only federal holiday in May and is celebrated on the last Monday of the month. The day, dating from the Civil War era, traditionally has marked recognition of those who have died in service to the nation. Each year on Memorial Day, the White House Commission on Remembrance promotes one minute of silence at 3 p.m. local time to honor the military's fallen comrades and to pay tribute to the sacrifices by the nation's service members and veterans.

National Military Appreciation Month: What's It All About?
National Military Appreciation Month started as a simple idea; to gather America around its military family to honor, remember, recognize and appreciate those who have served and those now serving and to know the history behind it all. Subsequent formal legislation informs our service members that their country has set aside an entire month to honor, remember and appreciate them.

Jeff Gordon Chevrolet salutes the nation's active duty and retired service members this month by installing, free upon request, the exclusive "Honor" badge – consisting of a yellow ribbon and "Honor" script – as a subtle recognition of military service to customers who buy an eligible Chevrolet through the GM Military Discount program. Chevrolet also will donate $100 to Cell Phone for Soldiers for each eligible vehicle sold.

The GM Military Discount is available to active, reserve and retired members and spouses of the U.S. Air Force, Army, Navy, Marines, National Guard and Coast Guard. The discount, ranging from $400 to $4,000, is available on most Chevrolet cars, trucks and crossovers, depending on the model and options selected. The discount can be combined with most current incentives. The GM Military Discount offers an additional $750 discount on selected Chevrolet vehicles to eligible members of USAA.
