FCA US LLC is proud to support the men and women of the U.S. Armed Forces, both at home and abroad. The Company currently has 20 employees on active military leave. Among U.S. employees, about 312 people are currently active or inactive Reservists and 4,256 employees are veterans. FCA US has numerous military related programs emphasizing community growth, support and gratitude throughout the U.S. and the world.
The Company's brands have long played an integral role in our nation's fight for freedom. Consider the Jeep brand: Born of American ingenuity and tested in the heat of battle in jungles, deserts, and battlefields during World War II. The hardworking and loyal Jeep 4x4s garnered heroic praise and unwavering devotion from allied soldiers the world over. One Jeep vehicle was even awarded the Purple Heart for meritorious valor and duty. The Dodge brand's military record is just as impressive, contributing mightily by producing a large percentage of the Army's fighting wheeled vehicles including large six-wheeled troop and cargo transports, light command cars and ambulances.
And, not to be caught on the sidelines, the Chrysler brand can trace its military support back to the 1930s. As a designated major U.S. defense contractor, the Company has at one time or another produced everything from Sherman tanks to B-29 bomber engines, from all types of military vehicles such as ambulances and amphibious trucks to antiaircraft guns, shells, missiles, and even field kitchens and refrigerators.
History is important, but what is FCA US doing today? Plenty!
