Saluting Our Country's Bravest



audio package, .mp3
ANCHOR LEAD: May is U.S. Military Appreciation Month, and Brian Osuch is finding out how one of America's most recognizable companies is saluting our country's finest. (:60) SCRIPT: Zero to Sixty, I'm Brian Osuch. GM's history with the U.S. military stretches as far back as 1917 when the majority of their truck production was directed toward World War One manufacturing. And since then, GM's James Bell says they continue to salute our country's brave service members. CUT: (Bell) The men and women of the U.S. Armed Forces give so much for so many of us. So during Military Appreciation Month, Chevrolet dealers will install a free yellow ribbon "Honor" badge to eligible vehicles purchased through our military discount program. It's a subtle, but special way to recognize their dedication to keeping us safe. SCRIPT: GM has also been a driving force behind keeping troops connected to their families while overseas. CUT: (Bell) Over the past two years Chevrolet has collected over one-hundred-three-thousand used devices for Cell Phones for Soldiers, and converted those into six-point-two million free talk minutes. And now, for every eligible Chevy vehicle sold in May, GM will donate one-hundred dollars to Cell Phones for Soldiers. SCRIPT: For more, log onto G-M=-Military-Discount-dot-com. That's Zero to Sixty from GM.
