Salute – Bergeron Auto and Operation Homefront Louisiana
The Museum partnered with New Orleans-based Jeep dealership Bergeron Auto and Operation Homefront Louisiana on a three-month promotion to benefit Louisiana’s current service members, wounded warriors and their families who reside in the state. First manufactured in 1945, the Jeep became an icon of WWII. Known for their dependability, Jeeps served our troops in every theater of the war and were used by each of the Allied countries in the fight for freedom and democracy.
On December 17, the final day of the promotion, Bergeron Auto presented a $15,000 donation check to the Museum as well as a check for $7,000 to Operation Homefront Louisiana.
We’d like to thank Bergeron Auto for the generous donation that will help us continue to tell the story of the brave men and women who fought for our country during WWII.
