As part of Hankook’s commitment to helping people through mobility, Hankook continues to support DAV’s efforts to reach underserved veterans. DAV makes 70 stops within the southeast region each year to provide free services, including Tennessee, where Hankook will open its first U.S. manufacturing plant in 2016.

At the MSO stops, certified DAV National Service Officers will be available in the “office on wheels” to ensure veterans who sacrificed for the nation receive the benefits they earned.

Gateway Tire also will host special activities during the times of the MSO stops.
