Description The Military Tribute Camaro was commissioned to proudly honor the men and women of America's Armed Forces and represents all five branches and features some of the military's highest individual awards and current campaign medals on separate sections of the vehicle. All proceeds from the sale of this vehicle will benefit the Achilles Freedom Team of Wounded Veterans. Army (front driver side) - Navy (rear driver side) - Marine Corps (front passenger side) - Air Force (rear passenger side) - Coast Guard (vehicle trunk) - Distinguished Service Cross, Silver Star and Afghanistan Campaign Medal (driver side) - Navy Cross, Bronze Star and Iraq Campaign Medal (passenger side). This rolling work of art features the work of world-renowned airbrush artist Mickey Harris. Harris grew up on military installations and has been airbrushing for 33 years and has an extensive portfolio of military art. His concept for the Military Tribute Camaro was simple: to honor those who serve and have served. Mickey explained, "I wanted something that accented the body lines and also told the story of the armed services. It became two paintings in one. I call it Strength and Honor. The strength is the silver of the car, and the honor is the many scenes." General Motors has a long-standing commitment to support the men and women serving our country and is a proud sponsor of the Achilles Freedom Team of Wounded Veterans. Since its inception in 2004, Achilles works closely with the physical therapists at Walter Reed National Medical Center in Bethesda, MD; Balboa Naval Hospital in San Diego, CA; and Brooke Army Medical Center in San Antonio, TX. These young military men and women are coming back to the U.S. with severe physical and emotional injuries. Program participants are encouraged to begin training for competitive sports marathons as a way to build strength and self-confidence, using prosthetics and hand-crank wheelchairs. All injured military personnel and veterans are eligible for the program, whether the injury is combat or non-combat related. **ALL PROCEEDS TO BENEFIT ACHILLES FOUNDATION** **WILL BE SOLD AT APPROXIMATELY 3PM SUNDAY JANUARY 22, 2012**
