Schumacher Auto Group Gifts Navy Seal With New Truck

May 15th, 2019 by

Schumacher Automotive has been an active member of the South Florida community for over 40 years. During this time, we’ve been proud to give back to our community in a variety of ways. And this spring, we honored an esteemed member of our armed forces.

Honoring Britt Slabinski, Navy Seal and Medal of Honor Recipient

On the morning of Monday, April 22, Chuck Schumacher, the owner of Schumacher Auto Group, personally presented retired U.S. Navy Seal Britt Slabinski with a brand-new truck.

“He’s such an American hero,” Schumacher told WPTV. “These guys are fighting to ensure our safety and freedom.”

Slabinski served in the Navy Seal for 25 years. In May 2018, he was awarded the Medal of Honor, which is the highest and most prestigious military decorations.

When discussing his Medal of Honor, Slabinski told WPTV, “I think the other recipients will tell you that the medal doesn’t really belong to them, it belongs to just so many others.”

During his career as a Navy Seal, Slabinski served in Central and South America, but primarily in Afghanistan and Iraq after 2001. He had led a reconnaissance team in Afghanistan in 2002.

Schumacher noted that he was honored to have been able to be able to celebrate Slabinski’s accomplishments with a new Chevrolet truck.
