Vets and Vettes, as American as Apple Pie

ride-along-2.jpgThis Memorial Day weekend, CorvetteForum helped sponsor the Corvette
Forum Cruise-In at the National Corvette Museum.  The annual event gives
the online community a chance to meet face-to-face and share their common love of the great American sports car.

This year provided a new and very special wrinkle. The American
Warrior Recognition Day was added to the weekend’s event line-up, in an effort
to thank some wounded Veterans for their service and sacrifice.

Once the veterans arrived at the museum, they were given a tour of the Museum and the Bowling Green Assembly Plant. The veterans were treated to a luncheon as well.
