Carroll County Times article on C&A veterans giveaway

Great article today by Jennifer Turiano for the Carroll County Times about our $2,500 veterans giveaway for 2018. Nominations are open through Saturday night.

“There was one fella [last year], and I don’t want to give too much detail but he served and retired and he’s part of the local volunteer fire department. He volunteers at the high school in the area, and right before we did this his wife had a stroke and was in a rehab facility,” Langmeade said.

“He was driving — he didn’t have to, he wanted to — he was driving down there every single day to visit her, and his only vehicle needed a lot of work. He explained to me, ‘I want to be there for her when she wakes up every morning,’ and the vehicle just wasn’t reliable enough. It needed tires, brakes and exhaust.”

After the work was completed, Langmeade said the veteran stops by the shop to visit regularly.

“Just to see his expression, and to see him after he drove his vehicle and knew he had something reliable,” he said, “to see he didn’t have to worry about that anymore — it was neat. It was really neat.”

Veterans Day 2018

Back on the Road 2018

Time for our second annual Back on the Road! Last year, over 30 nominations were submitted for South Carroll veterans who continue to serve our local community in many amazing ways. We’re excited to make this an annual event.

C&A is once again selecting two veterans living in the Eldersburg/Sykesville area who could use a little extra help getting or keeping their vehicle going. Whether its for travel to work, finding work or transporting their family around—we’re looking to get them back on the road.

The selected veterans will each receive up to $2,500 of auto repair or maintenance services at no charge. All work will be done to our high standards with our full 24 month/24,000 mile warranty—they will just see an amount due of zero.

We will not advertise their names unless the veteran approves and everything can be submitted anonymously if you prefer. We may broadly announce what work was done but not who it was for or any identifying images of the vehicles.

Selections will be made Veterans Day, Sunday, November 11th, 2018. We can begin work as soon as it convenient for the nominee.

  • No need to like a page or buy anything
  • No limit on nominations
  • Nominees are picked at our sole discretion

Liberty High USO Club

C&A is proud to sponsor Liberty High School‘s USO Club this year. The USO Club holds a celebration breakfast on Veteran’s Day and invites members of the community who served int he military or who are currently serving to join them to commemorate their sacrifices and honor them for their dedication to our country.

They lay wreaths at Crest Lawn Cemetery in December to honor fallen comrades in coordination with Wreaths Across America. They participate in Operation Welcome Home which allows us to thank servicemen and women when they return home from overseas at BWI Airport.

They also are putting together care packages in conjunction with Operation Gratitude for those servicing overseas to help them know that we are thinking about them and appreciate their work.

We love the work these local students are doing and they set a great example for all of us!
