Fresno business offers free car washes to veterans

FRESNO, Calif. -- A local car wash is celebrating Independence Day by offering services to veterans.

Great American Car Wash on Blackstone and Dakota is honoring the meaning of holiday by giving back to those who fought for our freedom. The location offers free car washes to veterans three times a year, the 4th of July, Memorial Day, and Veterans Day.

The owner, Aj Rassamni, says he feels it's important to give back however he can. "I know how important freedom is, but I think really here a lot of people take for granted that they say we deserve it, we have it, but it's something we have to earn. And those people, the veterans, they earned it for us."

An estimated 300 to 350 vets took advantage of today's deal.
