UNITED STATES, February 23, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ -- AAMCO is joining with the popular TV show Military Makeover to help Sergeant Daniel Burgess of Cape Coral, FL and his family. Sergeant Burgess was medically retired from the Marines in 2014 after incurring several serious injuries, including the loss of a leg, in an IED explosion in Afghanistan.
In the episode airing on March 5th, 2021, AAMCO of Fort Myers performed an in-depth check of the Burgess’s car and AAMCO’s CSO, Brian O’Donnell, provides an education on auto maintenance for the Burgess’s two teenage daughters . During this segment, Brian walks through the work that AAMCO of Fort Myers performed on the Burgess’s car, while sharing basic maintenance tips like oil changes and checking your tire pressure.
Military Makeover host, Art Edmonds, also chatted with AAMCO COO Zach Peters, who previously served in the Marine Special Operations Command (“MARSOC”). While in MARSOC, Zach held many leadership roles including Operations Chief, Team Chief, and Reconnaissance Team Leader. Zach is the recipient of many awards including the Bronze Star, Combat Action Ribbon, and Force Recon Team Leader of the Year.
Zach Peters shared, “As a retired Marine, I was determined to bring the values I learned in the Military of hard work, determination, and excellence into my current role, and I am proud to work for a franchise that celebrates these qualities. With roughly 10% of centers veteran-owned, AAMCO has demonstrated a longstanding commitment to supporting us, and the sponsorship of Military Makeover is an exciting extension of this mission.”
Volunteers from the staff at AAMCO of Fort Myers and AAMCO’s CMO Amy Johnson also assisted with the renovation of the Burgess family home.
AAMCO COO and veteran Zach Peters, AAMCO Dealer and Army veteran Bill Farley, AAMCO CSO Brian O’Donnell, and AAMCO CMO Amy Johnson will be available for interviews ahead of the episode airing on March 5th, 2021.
