On Nov. 11th, we join as a nation to celebrate Veterans Day, formerly known as “Armistice Day.” What we now call Veterans Day in America originally commemorated the cessation of hostilities between the Allies and Germany; effectively ending World War I. In 1954, Armistice Day officially became Veterans Day. It is a day we set aside to remember and honor the valiant sacrifice the men and women of the United States military have made in service to their nation.
McCarthy Chevrolet Lee’s Summit, your hometown Kansas City Chevy dealer in Lee’s Summit, MO, proudly salutes our veterans on this important day and every day by offering a special Military Discount Program through Chevrolet. This special discount extends to all Active Duty members, Reserves, and Veterans who are within one year of discharge. Included are spouses of members of the U.S. Air Force, Army, Navy, Marines, National Guard, and Coast Guard.
This special Chevrolet military discount can be used with most current Chevy incentives for even more savings at our Chevrolet dealership in Lee’s Summit. As a bonus, USAA Insurance members receive $750 of additional savings through an exclusive offer.
