National WWII Museum Partners with Iconic WWII Brand

National WWII Museum Partners with Iconic WWII Brand
Jeep Rolls to Benefit Museum and Operation Homefront

NEW ORLEANS (September 15, 2011) - Jeep was the ubiquitous utility vehicle of the Second World War which gave rise to an entirely new class of consumer vehicles after 1945. The Jeep was used in every theater of the war and by each of the Allied countries.

Now The National WWII Museum in New Orleans has partnered with Jeep dealership Bergeron Auto and Operation Homefront Louisiana in a three-month promotion to benefit Louisiana's current servicemembers, wounded warriors, and their families who reside in the state.

From September 17 through December 17, The National WWII Museum will donate two general admission tickets to everyone test-driving a Bergeron Jeep vehicle, and Bergeron will make a donation to Operation Homefront Louisiana with every Jeep sold during the period. Each weekend, the Museum also will welcome twenty service members to enjoy dinner and the signature musical show at the Stage Door Canteen, coordinated through Operation Homefront and underwritten by Bergeron. Service members can register online for these entertainment packages at http://wwiimuseum-marketing.createsend1.com/t/r/l/tihkjil/ilkdkiel/i/.

The promotion will be launched Saturday, September 17 at The National WWII Museum. The public is invited to view a WWII Willys Jeep displayed alongside contemporary Jeep vehicles. The Museum's Living History Corps of World War II re-enactors will be on hand to share their wealth of information about the day-to-day lives of military men and women and the broader lessons of World War II. A presentation will be held in December to present the total donation from Bergeron Auto to Operation Homefront Louisiana.

The National WWII Museum tells the story of the American Experience in the war that changed the world - why it was fought, how it was won, and what it means today.  Dedicated in 2000 as The National D-Day Museum and now designated by Congress as America's National WWII Museum, it celebrates the American Spirit, the teamwork, optimism, courage and sacrifice of the men and women who fought on the battlefront and served on the Home Front.
