Remembering What’s Important this Veterans Day

By: Metro Detroit Chevy Dealers | November 6, 2019
Veteran's Day

Veterans Day is an opportunity for all of us to take the time to remember all of those who have served. The day allows us to reflect and pay tribute to those who protect us, and while this should be a more common occurrence, it’s important to honor that sacrifice. Metro Detroit knows that and has numerous events throughout the Veterans Day weekend that supports veterans with parades, events, and shows.

The Stahls Automotive Foundation will host its annual Power Play for Heroes on Saturday, November 9.
