Zeigler Auto Group Honors Our Veterans 2022




Kalamazoo, Mich. (November 11, 2022) - Zeigler Auto Group is proud to honor all of our Veterans 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.

"This day is an important reminder of all of the sacrifices our best and bravest have overcome in the name of freedom. Please join me in thanking our veterans by expressing your appreciation for them today, and every day," 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 our Veterans 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. 



















"I have a deep appreciation for our Veteran's and am fortunate to work alongside many who have served or 

have family members serving at Team Zeigler.  We thank them for their service to our great country!"

Mike Van Ryn, Director of Talent Development
