Honoring the Sacrifice – Supporting Our American Heroes

Here at Capital Toyota, we are all about giving back to the community and were absolutely honored to be able to work with Honoring the Sacrifice to supply Corporal Daniel Palmer and his family with a new Toyota Sienna van.

In 2010, Cpl. Palmer was serving with the 3rd Battalion, 6th Marine Regiment when his life was changed forever.  While on patrol in Afghanistan, he lost his right leg and sustained other life-altering injuries after stepping on an Improvised Explosive Device (IED).

According to Honoring the Sacrifice Board President Todd Smith, “this van will provide much needed, safe and reliable transportation for Cpl. Palmer, his wife, and their three young children.” It was a privilege to us here at Capital Toyota to be able to honor Daniel’s service and sacrifice.

While surprising the Palmer family with a Toyota Sienna of their own was very exciting, our F&I Manager, Mike Reno, set up another exciting adventure for Daniel – a tandem skydive. Check out Daniel’s experience falling from the sky in the video below.

We would also like to give a big shout out to WUSY US-101 for receiving the American Patriot Award from Honoring the Sacrifice during the annual American Heroes Dinner. This award is presented to a company, organization, or individual who demonstrates a commitment to supporting and assisting our nation’s wounded veterans.

Thank you to Honoring the Sacrifice for allowing Capital Toyota to be supporter of your wonderful events for the last four years. And a huge thank you to all the men and women who have served and sacrificed so much – you and your families are all our heroes. “We owe a debt to the veterans that we cannot pay.”
