With Memorial Day Approaching, Benzel-Busch Supports the Johnny Mac Soldiers Fund

Benzel-Busch and All Mercedes-Benz USA Dealers Support the Johny Mac Soldiers Fund

Giving Back Through Education

Mercedes-Benz USA Dealers, including Benzel-Busch, are proud partners of the Johnny Mac Soldiers Fund since 2016.

How we help

For every Mercedes-Benz vehicle sold in the U.S. this year, Mercedes-Benz USA Dealers will make a donation to the Johnny Mac Soldiers Fund, which helps provide eligible military children with college scholarships and other college assistance.

Why we help

Time and again, America’s military members and their families are asked to give of themselves for the rest of us. While they ask little in return, we owe them so much.

Who we help

Mercedes-Benz USA Dealers are honoring fallen members of the U.S. Armed Forces by lifting their children up.

Who was Johnny Mac?

Col. John McHugh, a member of the U.S. Army for 24 years, was killed in action on May 18, 2010 in Kabul, Afghanistan. His fellow West Point classmates then joined together to ensure that his five children would receive a college education. In 2014, that effort grew into the Johnny Mac Soldiers Fund.

The results

To date, the Johnny Mac Soldiers Fund has funded over 400 scholarships totaling nearly $3.5 million. For every $1 raised, 94 cents is designated for the kids.
