“Esprit de Corps”   (n) a feeling of pride, fellowship, and common loyalty shared by the members of a particular group.


The goal of this project is to reduce veteran suicide that is estimated at 22 a day, more than double of the civilian population. How will this project accomplish this mission? By getting veterans involved with other veterans that they can talk to and relate to.

• Veterans that can talk to other veterans are less likely to commit suicide.
• Getting veterans out in the community and involved in projects also reduces the likelihood
of a veteran committing suicide.
• Giving a veteran a mission or purpose will reduce the likelihood of a veteran committing suicide.

So why a Jeepster???? Well for several reasons…

  • pre-1975 for emissions (important in CA
  • Light weight
  • Removable top
  • 101 inch wheelbase just for reference an LJ which revered for its wheelbase is 103.4
