Thousands of Veterans Expected for Stahls Open House


Several thousand veterans are expected to visit Stahls Auto Museum on Nov. 11 as part of the Chesterfield-based organization’s Veterans Day open house.

The free event will include displays of military vehicles, uniforms, and artifacts on loan from The Detroit Arsenal of Democracy; videos of Bob Hope’s USO variety shows; and a presentation about American history in the museum’s drive-in theater.

“One of the purposes of this event is to encourage open discussion about history between the generations, to allow veterans to share their stories,” says Ted Stahl, founder of Stahls Automotive Foundation. “We are humbled to be able to recognize veterans in this way. My father served in the Pacific and my brother is also a veteran. We have many family members who have served or are still serving.”

The Stahl Family will match any donations made during the open house, to be held from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., with proceeds going to the Wounded Warrior Project.
