Tomorrow, November 11th is Veterans Day, a national holiday designated to honor all those who have served our country, both past and present. This is a day of remembrance for all our Veterans who gave the ultimate sacrifice and lot their lives while protecting our freedom. Military.com has a huge and comprehensive list of merchants and businesses who are offering ‘Veterans Day Freebies’ and discounts as a small token of appreciation for all of our Veterans here in the Motor City, we have that information for you right here!
If you or your loved on is a Veteran, we would like to THANK YOU for your service and tell you how much we APPRECIATE your sacrifices to serve our country. I know how difficult it is for the family members of veterans as well. They too make many sacrifices here at home, with a loved one deployed and away from home and family.
My late father-in-law John Young (pictured above) was MOST proud of his service during WW2, and I will never forget the full military honors her received at his memorial service here at our home. God BLESS our military members! Love, Linda Lee
