Chevrolet has reaffirmed its commitment to the United States Military and its Special Forces. The brand is gearing up to once again sponsor the annual Army-Navy game, with a greater focus on the men and women involved in special forces.
Former General Motors Chairman and CEO Dan Akerson, a U.S. Naval Academy graduate, will join retired U.S. Navy SEAL Master Chief Rick Kaiser, executive director of the National Navy SEAL Museum, to salute the special forces during the presentation of a Chevy Silverado Special Ops Concept vehicle at the game.
Said 2016 Chevrolet Silverado Special Ops concept was also confirmed for production along with the continued sponsorship announcement. The production Special Ops Silverado will see a portion of its proceeds go towards the Navy SEAL Museum.
Chevrolet will also host the U.S. Expeditions and Explorations (USX) Mt. Everest Expedition Team and its members before the game. The group focuses on helping veterans who struggle with combat injuries and post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
