While continuing to build its U.S. presence Hankook is increasing its support for America’s veterans. To further recognize the men and women who have served our country, Hankook is hosting the Hankook Heroes recognition program through Aug. 7. Anyone can share a photo and brief story about their military hero in the online gallery at HankookHeroes.com. The hero has a chance to receive a set of Hankook tires.

“Hankook is dedicated to honoring veterans and helping provide them with access to the benefits and services they deserve,” says Seung Hwa Suh. “Now in the second year of our partnership with DAV, we’re honored to have been able to participate in DAV’s national convention and recognize veterans for their service and the sacrifices they have made.”

As part of Hankook’s partnership with DAV, Hankook is helping deliver free services to veterans of all generations by hosting four of this year’s DAV Mobile Service Office (MSO) stops. The DAV MSO vehicle will be at the following locations this fall:

  • Discount Tire in Phoenix on Sept. 14;
  • Gateway Tire in Gallatin, Tenn. on Sept. 15;
  • Gateway Tire in Clarksville, Tenn. on Sept. 16; and
  • CJ’s Tire in Philadelphia on Oct. 12.
