Expanded GMC Military Discount Covers 21 Million Personnel

Military AppreciationIn celebration of National Military Appreciation Month, GMC is expanding its military discount. Normally the discount is offered for veterans within one year of separation, active-duty personnel, reservists, retirees, and their spouses. Now, GMC will offer the discount to all 21 million US military veterans, regardless of separation date.

The GMC military discount varies somewhat by year, and model; however, when combined with other offers, veterans can save thousands of dollars. According to GMC, the military discount is also offered for spouses of personnel, which is a great way to support the families of all our men and women serving at home and abroad.

“These brave men and women have done so much for our country,” said Steve Hill, GM vice president of US sales and service. “Making sure all veterans can take advantage of our military discount to celebrate Military Appreciation Month is one small way we can express our gratitude.”

This discount is available for some of the most popular GMC models, including the Acadia and Yukon. Believe it or not, GMC began supporting the US military more than 100 years ago during the First World War by supplying troops with reliable trucks and parts. Today, it continues that legacy by giving back.

Tips and Tricks for Transporting Gardening Materials

CloversSpring is the perfect time to get outside and plant your garden. However, one of the most important parts of maintaining a quality garden is the way you transport materials there. We’ve put together a list of tips for transporting gardening materials, ensuring your plants last longer and that the interior of your car stays clean.

According to Gardening Know How, timing is everything. You don’t want to plant in the summer or during the middle of the day, as temperatures can cause plants to dehydrate and fail. Early spring, in the morning or on an overcast day, are the best times to transport and plant materials.

Next, keep your car clean by putting down a tarp or sheet. It’s best to have a waterproof material that won’t allow water or mud to affect the upholstery. If you drive a truck, try to go slow and cover plants if possible, as wind damage is a serious concern for trees and bushes.

While transporting materials, be sure to stop every two hours or so if you go long distances. Plants need to be watered frequently. When moving the root system, keep the soil intact to create a ball of soil. This is what needs watered.

Finally, when you arrive be sure to remove any broken leaves or twigs. Clean your car with a vacuum as soon as possible to get rid of any loose soil.
