Veterans Day 2013

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. ┬áThis year, it’s something a little different, but no less interesting.

Culver Jeep

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.
