As the leaves change, the air becomes cooler and families prepare for the Thanksgiving holiday the tone of the season turns to one of appreciation and gratitude. The Veterans Day holiday perfectly embodies this feeling and we at Martin and Martin would like to publicly thank one of our long time insured, Algie Young. Mr. Young honorably served in the Korean War from 1951-1953 and once back in the States continued his public service as a Toledo Fire Fighter.
Much of Algie’s close family followed in his courageous footsteps by serving themselves. Algie can claim his brother, 2 brothers in law, his own son as well as 5 grandchildren as brave soldiers to our country. At one time he had four grandchildren serving in the Iraqi conflict at the same time. Today we want to thank Algie and his entire family for honoring our country, as well as so many unnamed heroes.
Algie has been a part of the Martin and Martin family for some time, working as a Toledo Fire Fighter alongside Big Jack Martin – the 2nd generation owner of Martin and Martin Agency. Algie’s patriotism runs deep and his American flag proudly flies each day in respect for his country. This Veterans Day we wish Algie, along with all Veterans a day filled with pride in their heroism.
