Every story is different. From WWII and Vietnam to Iraq and Afghanistan, every veteran’s experience is unique, yet equally important.
As they recount their memories, they remember friends who didn’t return home. Friends who weren’t able to hug their families or hold their kids one more time. It’s those friends, fighters that we remember on Memorial Day.
Honor these brave military men, women and K-9’s at any number of Memorial Day community events around Oakland County, in addition to your neighborhood barbecue.
