General Motors has long been a supporter of service men and women of the U.S. Military. Recently, GMC and the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation recognized some of bravest veterans at the 6th annual Honoring Our Heroes Gala to benefit the Smart Home Program and the Fallen and Wounded Soldiers Fund of Michigan.
“GMC’s Professional Grade identity is a perfect fit for these organizations because it is the same philosophy these veterans live by day in and day out,” said GMC Marketing Director Rich Latek. “This mindset drives us to strengthen our efforts and help provide our veterans the state-of-the-art Smart Homes they need to achieve independent lives.”
The Smart Home Program builds custom-designed, mortgage-free homes for some of the most catastrophically injured service members in our country. The Tunnel to Towers foundation has pledged to build at least 200 smart homes for these brave men and women.
Along with this program, GMC honors veterans in a variety of ways. Nationwide, the unemployment rate for vets is 3.7%. In Michigan, it is under 3.5%, thanks to companies like GM, which currently employs about 5,000 veterans. GM has also offered a military discount program for years and will extend it to First Responders starting in June.
