#TEAMZEIGLER Salutes Our Veterans




Kalamazoo, Mich. (November 11, 2021) - Zeigler Auto Group is proud to salute all of our heroes this Veterans Day, especially those who are part of our very own #TEAMZEIGLER family.  Veterans Day is celebrated every November as a way to honor all who have served in the U.S. military across different branches, representing the highest ideals of what our country stands for. Recognized as a federal holiday, Veterans Day is a time to reflect and recognize the valor, courage, and sacrifice of these incredible patriots.

"Thank you for everything you have done for our country, and thank you for being part of our family at Zeigler. We are all incredibly proud to be among the bravest in the nation," said Aaron J. Zeigler, president and CEO of Zeigler Auto Group.

Although there is no possible way to fully thank these brave men and women who put their lives on the line in the name of freedom, we would like to honor them by showing our appreciation by highlighting them on this special day. Please join us in celebrating our Zeigler Veterans by learning more about them and hearing their thoughts on what Veterans Day means to them. 



We also had the pleasure of hearing from some of our most popular and distinguished Zeigler University Guest Speaker Series presenters. Our Zeigler University Guest Speaker Series is a highly successful, long running internal development program that invites entrepreneurs, athletes, innovators and leaders across different industries to share their stories and points of view with the Zeigler team. Among these extraordinary invitees are some of our favorite top ranking retired personnel turned motivational speakers including Captain Mike Abrashoff, Captain Dave Carey, and Captain Tom Chaby, among many others.

Finally, Bob Sullivan-who served in the Navy and is currently the Service Director of Mercedes-Benz of Hoffman Estates-summed up our thoughts on Veterans Day quite nicely, "This and every Veterans Day, we have the opportunity to pay our respect to our country's veterans. As a nation, we have to recognize that we are a free, democratic and successful country in this volatile world because we fought for it. Those who do that fighting are serving our country… and our country has to make sure we are serving them! Veterans Day is an opportunity to pause and thank veterans, those who are still with us and those who have gone before. Thank them with your vote and thank them with your charity by seeking out opportunities to help suffering veterans in need. This kind act goes much further than the obligatory, "thanks for your service." 

Once again from the entire #TEAMZEIGLER family, we would like to say thank you to all of our Veterans! 

We are proud to call you family.
