When people think of the SUV, soccer moms and family road trips could quickly come to mind. Instead, try to picture The Chevy Event, held in a North Carolina military tactical facility called The Range Complex. The Chevy Event shatters all those Hollywood film myths of how top-notch military operatives conduct missions with a hard cold splash of reality of what it truly takes to be successful in military operations. The exercises at TCE are comprised of experiencing first-hand training rescue simulations that push one’s mental and physical endurance to the limit. Unlike an action-packed movie, patience and maintaining calm are critical during high-stress conditions while still performing at an optimal level is what separates the wheat from the chaff. This is where the Cherovelt’s Tahoe Suburban SUVs come in.
Special Forces like Delta Force prefer the Tahoe and Suburban during rescue missions because of the cars’ reliability to still perform at a top-notch level. They have the capability of handling punishing off-road terrain due to their one of a kind suspension system and protective hardware to protect the underbelly of the vehicle from damage. Like Special Forces operatives, the Tahoe and Suburban can adapt to any changing situation with stealth without slowing down and compromising its performance.
Jim Reese, one of the co-founders of The Range Complex, explains the Tahoe and Suburban are chosen because they can withstand bullets and bodies. Reese would know, as a former Delta Force Lt. Colonel with 25 years of military service, who later went on to start his own successful Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business called TigerSwan, he has led the best of the best soldiers into the most dangerous situations known to man. His passion to serve and to listen is what motivated him to create TigerSwan – a company that would hire other disabled veterans and civilians that would contribute to making the world a better place. Sounds a bit corny? Well, Reese has made that core tenet of TigerSwan a reality. TigerSwan offers risk assessment, security, and construction logistical support domestic and abroad.
