We look forward to offering more ways for customers and employees to help support the brave service men and women of our country, and their families, and we thank the thousands of customers who purchased auto parts during our Veterans Day promotion."

Evangelist also said that in 2014, the company will be announcing a "Heroes Automobile Gallery: A Little Automotive Helping Hand for Those Who Have Served." The Heroes Automotive Gallery will offer auto parts discounts for service members, and will highlight the stories of our nation’s heroes.
