The iconic Cherry Bomb brand has built a global following, and now it has even made its presence known in Afghanistan! Jessica Alderson, a member of the 3rd Brigade Special Troops Battalion, of the US Army, now serving in her second tour there, shared with her mother how frigid the temperatures were in the mountains of Afghanistan. Because mothers are mothers, she sent Jessica a care package for Christmas, and included a Cherry Bomb Beanie so she could wear it under her helmet in the sub zero weather. As a member of Cherry Bomb’s HR Department, her mom, Beverly Adams, threw in a couple of Cherry Bomb stickers for good measure.
“When I was first spotted sporting my Cherry Bomb Beanie among the troops, the murmurs of recognition and remembrance were instantaneous,” says Jessica. “I cannot tell you how many guys had a Cherry Bomb story to tell, most revolving around the hours they spent in the garage with their Dad, rebuilding his old muscle car to its original glory, adding Cherry Bomb Glasspacks and sticker as the finishing touch.”
Jessica says that it is the simple reminders of home that make the arduous days and nights of service more bearable. Like football and home cooking, seeing the Cherry Bomb logo reminds her and her fellow soldiers of the American dreams for which they are fighting. And guess what troops? Cherry Bomb has a care package of its own filled with all the swag you could want on its way to Jessica’s attention as we speak!
On behalf of all of us at Cherry Bomb, we ask that not only Jessica’s division, but all of our US troops remain in the thoughts and prayers of all you gearheads out there.
Cherry Bomb began manufacturing the Cherry Bomb Glasspack in 1968. With less backpressure, the muffler increased horsepower and produced an unmistakable sound that embodied the power under the hood. Forty years later, Cherry Bomb manufactures a full line of high performance mufflers, in addition to a large number of cat back systems, accessories, and custom kits, all of which create fuel savings due to improved engine efficiency. Cherry Bomb is located at 2400 Maremont Blvd., Loudon, TN. For product information visit www.cherrybomb.com.
