On Veterans Day we remember all who served

Veterans Day at one time known as Armistice Day and the end of World War I – the Great War and the War to End All Wars – was fought from August 1914 and into 1919. The cost was the devastating loss of life for more than nine million combatants and six million civilians. Millions more were wounded and maimed for life.
Of those who perished, five thousand were Michiganders, including nine individuals from Plymouth who made the ultimate sacrifice.
In 1940, the City of Plymouth erected a World War I memorial in their honor.
A ceremony will be held on Friday, November 11th at 11:00 a.m. at the Plymouth Veterans Memorial Park at Main and Church Streets to pay tribute to our veterans and their families – men and women who have known the true cost of Freedom and deserve our deepest respect, now and forever.
We thank you for your service and may God bless you always.
