National Military Appreciation Month is celebrated every May and is a declaration that encourages U.S. citizens to observe the month in a symbol of unity, to honor the current and former members of the U.S. Armed Forces, including those who have died in the pursuit of freedom.
As a military spouse for almost 10 years, I’ve done some pretty hard things in my life. I have been through ups and downs like everyone else but being a military spouse is no joke. As the wife of an Army National Guardsman I know both worlds, they are equally challenging but military life is no cake walk. It is not for the faint of heart, that is for certain.
Being a military spouse has changed who I am fundamentally. Those moments in life when I thought I could never accomplish something or get through a tough trial. I used to think I needed things in order to fee complete, I know not only can I do anything I set my mind to, but I am very content with the simple life we have lived. Having my husband walk in through the door each night and sit down with his family for dinner. That is all I will ever need.
This month, in honor of Military Appreciation Month, Chevy is giving back to the military community by offering a discount to Veterans along with Active Duty, Reserves and Retirees (including spouses). The #ChevySalutes discount is currently available to more military personnel than any other brand. It’s just one of the many ways that Chevy is proud to serve all that have served.
Yes, Chevy gives automobile discounts to the military, but that isn’t the only way they help. These are other campaigns Chevy is currently working on to honor the military:
- Achilles International Freedom Team of Wounded Veterans to assist wounded veterans with completing marathon trainings
- Cell Phones for Soldiers campaign to assist deployed and returning soldiers with talking to their family
- Fallen and Wounded Solider’s Fund to assist those living in Michigan who were wounded in Iraq or Afghanistan

#ChevySalutes is also running an Instagram contest. To enter, just follow @msbnewmedia on Instagram, take a photo of your military hero or take a video of yourself or someone else thanking the troops, and then tag the upload with #ChevySalutes. On May 27th, MSB New Media will announce three winners! The grand prize is a $300 Visa gift card, and the 2 runners up will each receive a $100 Visa gift card.
Thank you Chevy for honoring our military families!
