Chrysler Group LLC, in partnership with Six Flags, will honor members of the

military during Six Flags Military Appreciation Days at 12 parks during the

month of September. At two of the parks, military families and the general

public will be able to send greetings to soldiers serving in Iraq and

Afghanistan via Freedom Calls, a state-of-the-art video conferencing,

telephone and internet service that connects troops to their loved ones at

home free of charge.


Six Flags Great Adventure in Jackson, N.J., will conduct Freedom Calls Sept.

12-13 and Six Flags over Texas in Arlington, Texas, will hold calls Sept.

19-20. The calls will take place from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. and 4 p.m. to 7

p.m. Scheduled calls will last for approximately 30 minutes each. Families

wanting to connect with loved ones serving abroad should contact Kathryn at

Freedom Calls Foundation between 8 a.m. and 10 p.m. (EDT) at (917) 755-1801.


"Throughout our history, Chrysler has supported the military. We continue that

tradition through our partnership with Six Flags by providing a way for our

troops, serving courageously in remote locations, to connect with their

families back home," said Michael Accavitti, President and CEO - Dodge Brand

and Lead Executive for Marketing, Chrysler Group LLC. "Freedom Calls helps

lift the morale of the men and women in uniform who have been separated from

their loved ones in service to our country. We are proud to be able to make

these vital communication services available to them."


In addition to offering Freedom Calls at the two parks, participating

Chrysler, Jeep(®) and Dodge dealers will also have family four-packs of

tickets available for admission to all of the parks for active military

personnel who come into a dealership for a test-drive. Chrysler will also

provide discounted admission for active military personnel at the park.


"Military Personnel Welcome" signage will be on display and a special "Message

to the Troops" card will be available for all guests to sign on Sept. 27 (on

Sept. 19 at Six Flags Great America in Gurnee, Ill.), along with interactive

vehicle displays, staffed by product specialists.


Chrysler Group and Six Flags announced in June that they would be extending

their partnership for one year, making Chrysler, Jeep and Dodge vehicles the

Official Vehicles of Six Flags Theme Parks and giving millions of consumers a

first-hand experience with Chrysler, Jeep and Dodge vehicles.
