Mazda Partners with Operation Homefront for Military Appreciation Day

Two military veterans were awarded brand new Mazda cars through a partnership between Mazda and Operation Homefront, and we couldn't be more proud to be associated with the Japanese automaker!

Navy Petty Officer 1st Class Don DeGuzman and Marine Sergeant Ricardo Mendez were recently invited to Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca in California. They expected a weekend of racing where they were to be honored for their military service but were instead surprised by new Mazda cars. Robert Davis, senior vice president of U.S. Operations at Mazda and Brig. Gen (ret.) John I. Pray Jr., President and CEO of Operation Homefront were in attendance to honor the military families.

“This is amazing – thank you to Operation Homefront, Chase, and Mazda,” said Ricardo and Adriana Mendez. “This means that I will have a dependable car and not have to struggle to get by. It’s one less burden we don’t have to worry about.”

Each of the families who were awarded a new Mazda model will get to select the model of their choice from Mazda’s lineup of new vehicles.

Jenkins Mazda in Ocala, FL is proud of Mazda’s support of our military personnel. For more information about Mazda vehicles contact our staff by phone or reach us through live chat on our website.
