Weatherford, TX (PressExposure) May 31, 2013 -- Matthew "Matt" James is fairly new to the GMC family - he has been with Jerry's Buick-GMC in Weatherford for a year, where he is the Internet Manager. "The Dealership is one of the best in the region," he states.
James served in the U.S. Army for 5Â½ years as an AH-64A/D (Apache helicopter) Crew Chief and was deployed to Korea and Iraq."The Army is a great organization, and I learned and gained a lot of knowledge."
Spending time with his family is important - James has been married for 10 years. He and his wife have a 3-year-old and 2-month-old. They enjoytaking their vacations in Colorado. "I like the mountains, the fresh air and the smell of the trees."
In James' opinion, GMC sponsoring Carry The Load is "great. I was Medically Retired as a Specialist. Carry The Load is a great way to help support returning troops who are dealing with issues."
In honor of Carry The Load, DFW GMC Dealers are calling all military - active duty and veterans - and friends and family! DFW GMC Dealers want people to salute a veteran or active duty military hero or first responder (fire, police, medical) by going to the DFW GMC Facebook page and entering a "salute." If you have a story and photo to share about the person you are saluting, DFW GMC Dealers will donate an additional $5 if you post it on their Facebook wall. DFW GMC Dealers - a 2013 sponsor of Carry The Load - will donate $5 for every salute and story up to $10,000 from today through May 27, 2013.
The Dallas Memorial March will be held Sunday and Monday, May 26-27, at Reverchon Park and Katy Trail. Money is raised by event participants and sponsors with a goal of $1 million. Recipients for 2013 are Assist The Officer, Heroes On The Water, Friends of Dallas Fire-Rescue, Tip Of The Spear Foundation and Sons of the Flag Burn Foundation.
