The Grace for Vets Organization, which brings together professional car washers in four countries to wash veterans’ cars for free on Veterans Day, has announced that it has surpassed 1 million free washes since its inception in 2004.

“The total cars washed for free is actually more than 1.2 million with this year’s total topping 268,000 free washes,” said Mike Mountz, founder of Grace for Vets and chairman of the board of the organization.

More than 3,300 car wash locations participated in the one-day event. Operators from the United States, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand took part. Mountz looks to expand the event to other countries as he feels “all veterans need to be honored for their service to their countries.”
