We're really happy that Chevrolet has invited our wounded men and women into their booth at the SEMA Show. It will be an amazing experience for our vets to be right in the middle of what's really hot in automotive specialty products
Woodland, CA (Vocus) October 27, 2010
At the invitation of Chevrolet, Town Square Production will be filming Nicholas Ashby, a Sergeant with the California National Guard, and a number of remarkable wounded veterans, courtesy of Challenge America, at the SEMA Show Chevrolet booth in November.
Footage of Nic and a number of amazing veterans will be featured in an upcoming television show Victorious that celebrates the extraordinary feats of our wounded returnees and showcases organizations that are helping them return to a victorious life.
After returning from duty in Iraq in 2006 and losing so many of his brothers, Nic wanted to keep the memory of his friends alive and created several moving tribute show cars, including last year’s 2010 Chevrolet Camaro National Guard car. This year at the SEMA Show, Chevrolet will be featuring Nic’s latest vehicle – a 2011 Chevy Silverado 2500 HD.
“I am excited there are veterans from Woodland, California who are being highlighted for their persistence and courage in the service of their country, and proud that our community is helping to tell their stories and the stories of so many in The Victorious Project," City of Woodland Mayor, Art Pimentel.
“We’re really happy that Chevrolet has invited our wounded men and women into their booth at the SEMA Show. It will be an amazing experience for our vets to be right in the middle of what’s really hot in automotive specialty products,” shares Jerry Macias, partner, Town Square Production.
Town Square Production is very pleased to be collaborating with Challenge America at the SEMA Show and on the Victorious Project. As a national organization that supports and raises awareness for the hundreds of thousands of war veterans who suffer from post combat injuries, Challenge America will be responsible for selecting and hosting the wounded veterans at the week-long show.
“Challenge America is proud to partner with Town Square Production on the Victorious Project,” said Houston Cowan, founder and executive director, Challenge America. “We work to answer the question, ‘when it happens, where do we go?’ for injured military and their families by connecting them to the resources they need for successful transition from battlefield to home front. In reconnecting with their families and their home communities, these brave men and women are better able to take hold of their ‘new normal’ lives victoriously.”
Challenge America’s mission is to work with communities across the United States in linking new and existing services and supporting the development of recreational and occupational programs for our returning wounded and their families. And most recently, Challenge America was selected to participate in the first healthcare platform Sharecare for consumers to ask, learn and act on the questions of health – Sharecare, Inc. Created by WebMD founder Jeff Arnold and Dr. Mehmet Oz, Sharecare was launched on Oprah on October 7th.
Chevrolet, SEMA, Challenge America, Creative Resources and Research, Town Square Production, and Fuel360 Productions, through the Victorious Project, are pleased to be able to help in some small way, our extraordinary returning wounded, and to celebrate their inspirational lives.
