Just wanted to share a little video sent to us by a Facebook fan the other day. We’re not huge fans of the Jeep Wave “point” system, but hey, if it gets more Jeepers waving at each other, then all the better!
Each year on Veterans Day, we here at jeepwaves.com like to bring you a story or picture of Jeeps in service. Last year, it was a story about flying Jeeps in WWII, the year before, a story of Jeeps liberating captured troops in WWII. This year, it’s something a little different, but no less interesting.
The photo above is of a commemorative pin from the Culver Military Academy. While officially named the Eagles, having a Jeep as your school mascot is quite a tribute to the vehicle that has served along side US troops for decades.
My father, who attended Culver and subsequently went on to a 20 year career in the Air Force, showed me this pin and recounted a few stories from his time at the school. While it was generally a very rigorous education, there were some stories of after hours mischief involving a Jeep and driving around campus with friends.
So, as you say thank you today to all those who have served us, past and present, give out a Jeep Wave or two and pay respect to the vehicle that supports our troops.
As we do every day of the year, www.jeepwaves.com donates 10% of all sales to the Wounded Warriors Fund as a small way to support our Vets. Thanks for helping us help them.
It was recently moving day for us here at jeepwaves.com. No, not moving the site anywhere, but actually, moving. FUN! As if we needed another reason to love the Grand Cherokee, we were continually amazed at just how much fit inside (and on top of) the Jeep. Sure, we got a few strange looks driving down the road Clampett style, but we got it done! Anyone else moved in a Jeep? Got any good stories?
