MT. PLEASANT, Mich. -- General Motors has a long history of supporting our military and focuses on assisting veterans in three ways: jobs, vehicles, and homes. We at Graff Mt. Pleasant are proud to be part of a company that honors our nation's heroes and seeks to give back to them in return for everything they do to ensure our freedom and safety.
Here are 3 important ways that General Motors honors our military veterans.
The unemployment rate amongst veterans 3.7 percent nationally. Thanks to companies like GM, it is below 3.5 percent in the state of Michigan as they currently employ over 5,000 vets and will hire 500 more this year.
The General Motors Military Discount Program gives a special discounted purchase or lease price on eligible GM vehicles to active duty service members, reservists, National Guard members, veterans within 3 years of discharge, and retirees of the US Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps, and Coast Guard.
Effective June 1st, GM is expanding its military discount program to include First Responders. Find out more on the official website.
Through their support of the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Tower Foundation and the Fallen and Wounded Soldiers Fund of Michigan, GM helps to place vets in Smart Homes so they can live the lives they deserve.
Through the Smart Home Program, the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Tower Foundation has committed to building a minimum of 200 mortgage-free, custom-designed homes to meet the specific needs of injured service members. The Fallen and Wounded Soldiers Fund of Michigan, an all-volunteer group of private citizens, offers essential financial assistance to our state's veterans of the post-9/11 Iraq and Afghanistan conflicts and their families.
Over the years, GM has raised more than $8 million dollars towards the support of our military veterans through these two charities with the help of their customers, dealers, and employees.
