TreadWright Tires Partners With Veterans Association

Posted on September 27, 2016

TreadWright Tires LLC is partnering with the Expeditionary Veterans Association (EVA) to provide tires for recreational and therapeutic outdoor excursions for veterans.  

The Houston-based tire manufacturer will provide tires to help transport veterans to outdoor activities hosted by the EVA in an effort to provide therapeutic recreation and outreach.

The EVA and TreadWright are partnering to ensure veterans and active service members have programs available to assist them in their progression of their Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) therapy and transition into civilian life.

The EVA operates in San Diego, Calif., and the surrounding areas, offering recreational therapy for veterans and active service members suffering from PTDS. Several times per week, the EVA organizes recreational outdoor excursion, providing transportation and equipment for all events.

The EVA is founded and operated by US Army OIF-1 Combat-Veteran Spc. Jacob Cruz-Ratliff, who found therapy through outdoor recreational activities that has helped him cope with his own PTSD. The goal of the EVA is to assist veterans in the progression of their own therapy and transition into civilian life.

The EVA says it hosts multiple events per week to assist more vets, aiming to deliver the biggest and most readily available benefit to as many veterans as possible. The EVA is funded solely on donations received by the organization and by partnerships with companies like TreadWright that provide the equipment to further the EVA's mission.

"PTSD is a growing epidemic with our service members that has devastating effects," says EVA founder Spc. Cruz-Ratliff.

"EVA represents a hope for a better life and the promise that our military personnel, past and present, will never be without assistance. We provide our services with help from partners like TreadWright because we as American people can show that we can never forget those that gave their all for the freedoms we now enjoy."

TreadWright says partnership with the EVA continues its tradition of supporting all-American enterprises. TreadWright tires are 100% American made in the company’s factory in Houston, Texas.

Throughout its 40-year history, TreadWright says it has always been committed to providing quality tires for as many hard working Americans as possible. TreadWright offers a wide range of LT and MT tires that fit any budget and are used in the most demanding environments. The company says that with its new Snap financing options, every truck and jeep owner can now afford a set of TreadWright tires.

"At TreadWright, we pride ourselves in providing reliable hardworking tires for hardworking Americans," says Anthony Showen, CEO of TreadWright. "We can't think of anyone more hardworking or deserving than our veterans, and we are honored to have the opportunity to help EVA advance its mission."
