The Veterans celebration theme has been a mainstay at the Autumn Get-Together for years. “This is a great time of year to honor our Veterans, our military personnel and all those who have sacrificed so much for our great country,” said Goodguys VP of Event Operations Harry Daviess. “Together with our friends at the P-Town Pushrods car club and the local Veterans hospitals, this event has long paid tribute to all those brave men and women.
