Having war veterans in our families, we know how it feels to have loved ones overseas serving their country. It is our pleasure to bring this post to you recognizing Jeep and the ones who serve us. Along side Operation Safe Return (OSR), Jeep will be donating $1 million of vehicles and funding to the United Service Organizations (USO) for programs that support the return of U.S. military services.
Video from Jeep.
“For the past two years, we have used the largest television viewing audience to highlight the pride, the resilience and the determination that form an integral part of the American character”, said Sergio Marchionne, chairman and CEO of Chrysler, in a statement released after the advertisement aired. Oprah Winfrey, who narrated the ad said, “It was an honor to lend my voice in support of those that serve us all”.
The ad opens up to a black screen with a quote from Winfrey saying, “We wait. We hope. We pray until you’re home again”. Throughout the ad we are faced with images of military men and women getting welcomed with open arms by family members as they arrive home. If this ad doesn’t shed a tear, we don’t know what will.
God Bless America and thank you to all those who have served and are still serving and protecting this country.
