The Jeep has a long and dignified military history, and from the very beginning they captured the attention and admiration of people everywhere. They served their country and their people in the war in Europe and the Pacific and helped defeat the Axis powers and bring peace to the world.
War correspondent Ernie Pyle characterized the Jeep vehicle in this way. “It’s as faithful as a dog, as strong as a mule and agile as a goat.”
Jeep vehicles were used by every division of the U.S. Military and large numbers were also shipped to the Allied Forces of Canada, Britain, Australia and New Zealand.
Jeep vehicles became a vital part of all action on land. They were used to lay telephone communications, transport the wounded and served as taxis to carry battle commanders, generals, prime ministers and presidents.
Based on this long-standing history of service, I thought it would be a great way to use that history to bring Jeepers and Jeep enthusiasts together to help support our Veterans and their families. We will also support our First Responders who are regularly on the scenes, helping with traumatic events.
Beyond the Jeep military pedigree, Jeep owners often share a passion for their vehicles and are friendly and helpful by nature:
- The Jeep Wave
- Towing or winching non-Jeeps out of mud pits
- Using on-board air systems to help inflate someone’s leaking tire
- Helping fix a broken down vehicle because of all the spare parts and tools many Jeep owners carry
- And the list goes on…
What better group of people to bring together to help support our Veterans, First Responders and their families that are in need.
