During the Army/Navy football game every year, Chevrolet and Wish for Our Heroes come together to hold a military family reunion during half time. This year, as the family of US Army Sgt. Jonathon Preston Thompson reunited, they received a bit of surprise—a brand-new 2015 Chevrolet Colorado.
“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 Dan Akerson, former General Motors Chairman and CEO and a graduate of the US Naval Academy.
We at Stalker Chevrolet were thrilled to see the Colorado join the family reunion at the Army/Navy game.
Sergeant Thompson served our country in two deployments. The family recently lost their house at Fort Riley in Kansas to a fire, which they are still recovering from. Hopefully, the Chevrolet Colorado will help them do just that. The Colorado was recently named Motor Trend magazine’s 2015 Truck of the Year, showing that its capabilities and perfect size will make sure the Thompsons have a dependable vehicle.
