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!

John Young WW2 Army pictureIf 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
