Salute to our Veterans

This morning at Cruise Central in Gulfport a special event took place to honor our veterans.

A ‘Salute to our Veterans’ is an annual event held during Cruisin’ the Coast and it gives vets and their families a chance to enjoy the cars, live entertainment, and eat some good food.

Service men and women from Keesler Air Force Base were on hand to help honor those who sacrificed everything for our freedom.

Sue Yglesias brings her car to the event every year not only to honor veterans, but also to remember the heroes who lost their lives during 9/11. “We bought the car from a gentleman who built the car in memory of his son who died in the Twin Towers. My husband was a volunteer firefighter for over 25 years and it meant something to us.”

Sue and her husband have been bringing this car to Cruisin’ the Coast for ten years now.
