Long Beach and the surrounding areas are filled with special men and women who have risked their lives for the freedom of America.
Island Park Car Wash, a nearby business affiliated with the Long Beach Chamber of Commerce, felt they should do a little something extra to honor the community's veterans by offering free full service car washes to those who have served in the military
"We saw it was something being done and we thought it'd be nice to offer here," said co-owner Stephen Siskind. "We hope they'll appreciate it and hopefully come back and become regular customers of ours."
Siskind felt that nobody was more deserving for such a special than military veterans.
"The fact that people are willing to risk their lives to fight for this great country is an honorable thing," he said. "I think they deserve a break whenever they can get it."
Island Park Car Wash is located at 4576 Austin Blvd., Island Park and will be open until 7 p.m.
