Nashville-based Hankook Tire America Corp. is continuing its partnership with DAV (Disabled American Veterans) by donating a new DAV Transportation Network vehicle to the Tennessee Valley Healthcare System Nashville Campus. The Hankook-branded vehicle is the only vehicle permanently stationed at the Tennessee Valley Healthcare System Nashville Campus. 

This new seven-passenger vehicle will join DAV’s fleet of volunteer-driven vehicles around the country that provide free rides for injured and ill veterans to VA medical facilities. The vehicle was officially unveiled at a ceremony at the Tennessee Valley Healthcare System Nashville Campus yesterday, where officials from Hankook Tire, DAV and the Tennessee Valley Healthcare System, along with volunteer drivers from the Transportation Network, welcomed the 2019 Ford Flex.

“Lack of reliable transportation is a major barrier for many veterans to access the healthcare services they earned. This donation will help the DAV Transportation Network offer 200,000 rides every year,” said Marc Burgess, CEO of DAV. “Hankook’s ongoing support will ensure many Tennessee veterans will get the care they deserve. They’re helping us keep a sacred promise to those who served.”

This year marks the fifth anniversary of the partnership between Hankook Tire and DAV to support the veteran community. Hankook Tire continues its commitment to DAV and helping veterans through mobility. Hankook Tire also sponsors DAV’s Mobile Service Office (MSO) program where DAV benefits experts drive their “office on wheels” across the country to counsel and assist veterans and educate them and their families on the benefits and services earned in service.

“Every day, Hankook Tire is committed to helping and honoring those who served in the military. We’re proud that nearly 25 percent of our Clarksville-based employees are veterans, and we know the importance of being able to access the services they need and deserve,” said Hosung Suh, president, Hankook Tire America Corp. “We’re honored to enable better access to medical care by providing mobility services to our hometown, Nashville-area, veterans with the new Hankook-sponsored vehicle permanently stationed at the Tennessee Valley Healthcare System Nashville Campus.”
