We Salute You! Honoring Our Veterans

Posted: 11/11/16

Today, we honor those who have stood for our great country in not only the greatest of times, but also our darkest, as we celebrate Veteran’s Day 2016. Designated a holiday on November 11, 1919 it was originally called “Armistice Day”. It was created to honor, the first anniversary of the end of World War I. Congress passed a resolution in 1926 for an annual observance, and November 11 became a national holiday beginning in 1938.

This weekend, there will be a number of celebrations honoring the work of these brave men and women from free meals and discounts to parades. Throughout Detroit, Veterans and current service members] and women can take advantage of savings being offered by the restaurants and retailers below as just one small token of our country’s appreciation of their service.
