Army-Navy Game Powered by Chevrolet

The 11th head on football confrontation between the United States Military Academy (USMA) at West Point and the United States Naval Academy (USNA) at Annapolis, Maryland, known to the world as the Army-Navy Game, will be a very special one for American car maker Chevrolet. The brand has been chosen to become the official vehicle for the event.

During the game, Chevrolet will present several of its programs, incentives and donations to various military-related organizations and people. A 2011 Chevrolet Silverado will be donated to the Freedom Team of Wounded Veterans, an $11,000 donation has already been made to provide the troops in Afghanistan with prepaid calling cards while the GM Military Discount continues to offer incentives for service men and women.

This year, the GM Military Discount also managed to collect no less than 20,000 cell phones across the US, cellphones that have been shipped to Cell Phones for Soldiers. The phones were sold and the proceeds went into buying calling cards for the soldiers.

“We at Chevrolet would like to give something back to those who give so much to our country,”
said Chris Perry, vice president Chevrolet marketing.

“For more than a century the Army-Navy Game which has represented the honor and pride of the Armed Forces that transcends the game of football. We are also proud to support the Freedom Team athletes, who serve as inspirations for all Americans,”
the GM executive added.

The Army-Navy football game takes place on December 11 at the Lincoln Financial Field. For additional information, follow this link.
