Melrose T-Top is also an active supporter of the Gary Sinise Foundation.  It is so easy these days to forget about the people that provide us with our freedoms.  Most of us ramble through life taking for granted the sacrifices of those men and women that allow us to do what we do. 

The parts we sell, and the vehicles under repair in garage stalls across America; it is all made possible by brave souls that put themselves ahead of others.

Freedom and security are precious gifts that we, as Americans, should never take for granted. We must do all we can to extend our hand in times of need to those who willingly sacrifice each day to provide that freedom and security. While we can never do enough to show gratitude to our nation's defenders, we can always do a little more.

-Gary Sinise”
