Chevrolet has been a long-time sponsor of the Navy vs. Army football game. Continuing its tradition of unique donations as a part of its sponsorship, Chevrolet presented a very deserving military family with a brand new 2015 Chevy Colorado. The presentation of the 2015 Colorado came after an on-field surprise, where U.S. Army Sgt. Jonathon Preston Thompson was reunited with his wife and daughter.
“As we’ve seen with the Thompsons and millions of others, military families make huge sacrifices for our country, and it feels good to celebrate Sgt. Thompson’s homecoming with a brand-new truck,” said Akerson in a recent news release.
The 2015 Chevrolet Colorado was made available to the Wish for Our Heroes organization, who awarded the vehicle to the deserving family. Wish for Our Heroes provides resources to military families that non-military families often take for granted. Its goal is to grant one wish to every deserving member of the U.S. military.
Sergeant Thompson has deployed twice, serving with distinction through Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom. Unfortunately, his family suffered a fire at their home at Fort Riley, Kansas earlier this year. The family continues to work to recover from the devastation.
Here at Wiesner of Huntsville, we couldn’t be happier for the Thompson family. Thank you for your service, Sergeant, and welcome home.
