Event Description:

99.5 WYCD presents Vets Fest, part of the Armed Services Salute, a free, family-friendly festival to celebrate Veterans Day with food, live music, activities and exhibits by local veteran support organizations.  The Armed Services Salute consists of three events on one continuous day of patriotic Veterans Day celebration in downtown Detroit, anchored at Cass Park.  The Armed Services Salute is a collaboration between the Metropolitan Detroit Veterans Coalition (MDVC), Wins for Warriors Foundation, founded by Justin Verlander and the 4Star 4Mile Race Committee. The Armed Services Salute is a regional acknowledgement of SE Michigan’s role as the Arsenal of Democracy and is supported by the VA, top ranking officers of active and retired military, bi-partisan political leadership and major corporations. The 2018 Armed Services Salute is the official celebration site for the WWI Centennial Commission honoring the armistice that ended World War One and marks the origin of the Veterans Day holiday. It is also a designated official regional Veterans Day Celebration by the US Veterans Administration, one of only 25 across America.
