Saluting our veterans

GEICO and our country’s military go way back. Many people don’t know that military members were among GEICO’s first customers when the company was founded in 1936, and that to this day we give the military special attention, with a service center in our Virginia Beach office that’s dedicated to meeting their needs.


I’m proud of this history and I’m proud to know that GEICO will take part in multiple events this November to pay tribute to our military veterans and the sacrifices they’ve made for our country. GEICO-sponsored NASCAR driver Casey Mears will compete in the Quicken Loans Race for Heroes 500 on Sunday, Nov. 9, at Phoenix International Raceway. Eager to get back into action after his 10th-place finish at the recent GEICO 500 at Talladega, Mears will drive a camouflage-wrapped car as a salute to veterans, just as he did for the Coca-Cola 600 in Charlotte in May in recognition of Memorial Day.


GEICO has also joined the effort to support our country’s disabled veterans by sponsoring the Disabled American Veterans (DAV) first annual community 5K walk, run and motorcycle ride in San Diego on Sunday, Nov. 9. The event will help raise crucial funds to get our wounded veterans the treatment they need.


And GEICO will also be joining the USO’s “Salute to the Troops” weekend in Las Vegas leading up to Veterans Day. The event gathers a group of wounded, ill and injured service members from around the country for a weekend of entertainment activities and sightseeing. A member of the GEICO Military Team will be at the events all weekend to represent GEICO and thank our wounded warriors for their sacrifice.
