DETROIT – Today through May 31, 2016, Buick will expand its military discount program for all 21 million U.S. military veterans and their spouses in honor of National Military Appreciation Month.
“These brave men and women have done so much for our country,” said Duncan Aldred, vice president, Global Buick Sales, Service and Marketing. “Making sure all veterans can take advantage of our military discount to celebrate Military Appreciation Month is one small way we can express our gratitude.”
Buick offers the industry’s most comprehensive automotive military discount program. The military discount program is typically available to U.S. military veterans within one year of separation, active-duty personnel, reservists, retirees and their spouses. In honor of May’s National Military Appreciation Month, the program expands to include all veterans – regardless of their separation date – and their spouses.
The discount is available for popular models, including the Buick LaCrosse, Regal and Enclave. Because the discount can be combined with most current incentives, veterans can save thousands of dollars on some vehicles. For more information, visit gmmilitarydiscount.com.
Buick’s support for the U.S. military spans generations. During WWII, Buick converted all its plant facilities in support of President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s call for an “Arsenal of Democracy.”
The tradition continues today as the Buick Achievers scholarship program helps many students—including deserving veterans like William Smith—become the first in their family to attend college. Between high school and starting his collegiate career, he served as an aviation electronics technician in the U.S. Marine Corps, supporting combat operations in Afghanistan, Iraq and Africa.
