There is still time left to nominate a DC active duty or retired military serviceman or woman who inspires you!
Chevrolet has long been a proud supporter of military men and women, as a producer of materials during WWII and through the military discounts the company offers servicemen and women today.
In an effort to continue to recognize and thank those who serve our country, the Driving the Northeast team is celebrating active duty and retired DC military men and women through the Chevrolet Military Salute DC program.
We’ll be accepting your nominations from September 24 through October 30. All nominations should be sent in via http://drivingthenortheast.com/military-salute-form to Lauren Fitapelli, the GM Northeast Region Military lead, who also has a brother serving on active duty in the U.S. Navy.
Here’s how to send us your nomination for the active duty or retired serviceman or woman you think deserves this special party!
- Complete the form and provide a photo here.
- For any questions or comments, please send Lauren Fitapelli an email at GMNortheast@gm.com.
We will choose the finalists and showcase them on our site. Then YOU will be able to show your support by voting on the site or via text for your favorite military serviceman or woman, and helping share his or her story. The selected serviceman or woman will receive a hometown celebration that will include their family and friends, as well as a one-week loan of a Chevrolet vehicle, not to mention a few other surprises.
