INDIANAPOLIS Bryant and the USO of Indiana recently hosted a group of wounded veterans and troops from all four branches of the military at its Indianapolis Motor Speedway suite. The event featured visits from distinguished guests from across Indiana and also gave attendees the opportunity to visit the pit areas and interact with race teams and drivers.

Bryant joined the USO of Indiana to host approximately 100 individuals, including a half-dozen wounded veterans who received extended treatment at the Richard L. Roudebush Veterans Affairs Medical Center in Indianapolis. The event was held on Armed Forces Pole Day, where race teams competed for the pole position and the final slots in the Indianapolis 500.

The 101st running of the Indianapolis 500 was held on May 28.

“The USO of Indiana could not perform its mission without the support of generous corporate sponsors, like Bryant Heating and Cooling Systems, and we are incredibly grateful for their support,” said Charles Ridings, executive director, USO of Indiana. “This is one of the largest and most popular events we hold each year, and it’s a wonderful experience for so many Indiana troops to spend time with the drivers and the race teams. These are incredible memories for our military community, and we couldn’t do it without the support of Bryant and its Indianapolis employees.”
