GM Announces 99 Limited Edition "Honor & Valor” Camaros & Military Discount Expansion

Spouses and retirees included in honor of
U.S. Military Appreciation Month


DETROIT – Chevrolet will honor National Military Appreciation Month by expanding the industry-leading GM Military Discount to military spouses and retirees; offering an exclusive “Honor” badge to anyone who buys an eligible Chevrolet through the program, and by donating $100 to Cell Phones for Soldiers for each eligible vehicle sold with a military discount.

“We are committed to offering military professionals and their family members the best value in the industry,” said Dan Akerson, General Motors Chairman and CEO. “As a former Navy man, I hold the highest regard for the men and women of our Armed Forces – past and present – who help keep our country safe and preserve our precious liberties.”

During May, the GM Military Discount program – already recognized as the best program in the industry – will be extended to spouses of Active and Reserve members, as well as retirees, of

the U.S. Air Force, Army, Navy, Marines, National Guard and Coast Guard. The discount is available on most Chevrolet, Buick and GMC models with discounts typically ranging between $500 and $4,000 off the suggested retail price of the vehicle purchased.

In addition, the GM Military Discount offers an a $750 discount unselected Chevrolet, Buick and GMC vehicles to eligible members of USAA, a financial services provider for the military community.

In 2010 alone, the GM Military Discount program provided more than 70,000 discounts to military personnel and their families with a cumulative value of more than $60 million.

For every person who purchases, leases or orders a new Chevrolet using the GM Military Discount in May, Chevrolet will provide an exclusive set of “Honor” vehicle badges as well as contributing $100 to Cell Phones for Soldiers, a non-profit group that provides free communication tools to troops serving overseas.

Since May 2010, Chevrolet and its dealers have collected more than 50,000 cell phones. Since the program began, proceeds from phone collections have provided more than 114 million minutes – or more than 200 years – of free calls home for U.S. troops.

At the customer’s request, dealers will install the badges on their new Chevrolet at no additional charge. The badge features a yellow ribbon and “Honor” script, a subtle recognition of their service.

The Military Appreciation Month program will conclude with 99 “Honor & Valor” Limited Edition 2012 Chevrolet Camaro SS vehicles, which will debut during the Indianapolis 500 military personnel parade on May 28. The limited-edition Camaro will be available to order through www.gmmilitarydiscount.com, beginning in May.

With only 100 available, these red, white or black painted vehicles feature a limited-edition Honor Badge, license plate bracket, heritage grille, side stripes, premium floor mats, painted ground effects, and one year of XM Radio(1).

2012 Honor and Valor Edition
 
Pretty cool, too bad I'm not in the market for a 2012 SS or I'd be on the list, haha.

Press Release

Anyone have some pics of this? I hope at least one of you vets out there can get your hands on this for us all to see!

Pretty cool Chevy. I might have to just try and buy the badge alone... :thumbsup:

Limited to 100? I'd like to see a pic of one just to see what these stripes are....

"With only 100 available, these red, white or black painted vehicles feature a limited-edition Honor Badge, license plate bracket, heritage grille, side stripes, premium floor mats, painted ground effects, and one year of XM Radio"

But yeah, pretty cool anyway.

HOT OFF THE PRESS - LIMITED EDITION 99 "Honor & Valor” CAMAR SS
 
FROM CHEVY CAMARO'S FACEBOOK PAGE


In support of our troops for National Military Appreciation Month we're announcing the production of 99 "Honor & Valor” Limited Edition 2012 Camaro SS Coupes, available to order beginning in May through our GM Military Program.

Every day, men and women protect the freedoms, ideals and liberties this country holds dear. And to show our thanks, Chevrolet is doing what we can to help return the favor during May's "Military Month" tribute.
For a person serving far away, a call home can be more valuable than gold. Fortunately, Cell Phones for Soldiers provides free calling cards to those overseas.

You can drop off your old phone at a participating Chevrolet dealer to help the brave individuals defending our country. And we'll do our part by contributing $100 to Cell Phones for Soldiers every time we sell a limited-edition 2012 Honor & Valor Camaro SS.

:word:+1, I hope that maybe we can get the badges from somewhere. Being a vet from Iraq and Afghanistan I would love to show my support for my brother's and sister's in arms.

stevea 04-27-2011 08:34 PM

How about all the Camaro owners kick in and really support our troops. What if each of us kick in a buck or two or five and give one of the limited edition Camaro's away.
I'm in

r magni 04-27-2011 08:34 PM

I wish the program covered honorably discharged veterans
