Carwashes across the U.S. honor veterans

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. — Veterans Day was recognized by many professional carwashes.

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. — On Nov. 11, which was reserved for Veterans Day in the U.S., many professional carwashes across the country honored vets with free carwashes and services.

According to an article posted by the Log Cabin Democrat, Zips Car Wash, along with more than 3,600 other carwash locations across the nation, provided free carwashes to veterans as well as current military service personnel, under the Grace For Vets Free Wash Program.

“Military personnel and the sacrifices they make is near and dear to our hearts,” said Harrison Hemphill, Zips Car Wash chief operating officer. “Participating in this program (Grace For Vets) every year is an honor for us to try to show our appreciation for their sacrifice.”

According to an earlier press release posted on, 7 Flags Car Wash also partnered with Grace for Vets to offer a very special thank you to all who have served the country.

On Veterans Day, 7 Flags Car Wash thanked active-duty military and veterans by offering a free $7 express exterior carwash or a $7 credit for any upgrade, noted the release.

7 Flags also offered a 40 percent discount on any detail services and 40 percent off any extra services from its express lube for any active military personnel or veteran on the special day.

According to another story posted on, another carwash chain, Drive and Shine, also honored current or former military members on Nov. 11th with free carwashes.

“One of our big goals for our company is to be good stewards in our community,” said District Manager Jeff Guess. “We don’t want to just think about ourselves, we want to give back as much as we can.”

According to the article, Drive and Shine has been honoring vets for more than a decade to ensure that members of the armed services feel a sense of appreciation on this day.

Grace For Vets was founded by Mike Mountz, former owner of Cloister Wash & Lube, in Ephrata, Pennsylvania, in 2004.
