“It’s impossible to repay our nation’s veterans for their bravery and service to our country,” said Craig Jackson, chairman and CEO of Barrett-Jackson. “Their commitment to our nation is truly inspiring, and we’re honored to provide a platform to help these brave men and women through the sale of this custom 2018 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon. The NS2 Serves program helps our veterans develop important skills and training they need to be competitive in today’s workforce. We’re looking forward to our bidders opening their hearts to support this great effort.”
