Hankook Tire America Corp. has nearly doubled the number of Hankook-sponsored DAV Mobile Service Office (MSO) stops this year to help the veteran community with Disabled American Veterans (DAV).
This year, the tiremaker provided free services including VA disability claims assistance to 172 veterans and their families at participating tire dealerships in Arizona, Tennessee and Pennsylvania – a 47% increase compared to last year.
This year’s Hankook-DAV MSO stops included Discount Tire in Phoenix; Gateway Tire in Gallatin, Tenn; Gateway Tire in Clarksville, Tenn; and CJ’s Tire in Birdsboro, Pa.
“As a committed partner of DAV, Hankook is proud to have expanded its MSO sponsorship this year to include four locations, and to have been able to provide even more veterans and their families with the services they need in their hometown,” said Hee-Se Ahn, president of Hankook Tire America Corp. “The support of local Hankook tire dealers like Discount Tire, Gateway Tire and CJ’s Tire to host these stops is greatly appreciated as we continue to work together to provide the veteran community with access to important services where they live.”
As part of its 2016 partnership with DAV, Hankook has sponsored 10 of DAV’s Recruit Military veteran job fairs across the country, co-sponsored all five of the Cincinnati Reds’ Military Appreciation Day baseball games, participated in the DAV National Convention and will be sponsoring the DAV 5K Atlanta on Nov. 5.
