Ranging from photography to watercolors to metal sculptures to wood sculptured bowls you can use, we just might be your best shopping site for holiday gift ideas for the Veteran in your life who has everything else.
We began the Auction November 11. Although a few items have already been purchased, new items are being added on a rolling basis through mid December, so check back often and please bid generously. You will be nicely surprised by the quality and affordability of items.
During the last few years of his life, Howard “Howitzer” Ambinder devoted his time remaining on earth to serving other Military Veterans like himself, most of that energy going into supporting the Michigan Freedom Center.
Howard spent countless hours, days and weeks from 2016 until his death in 2018 attending art fairs and other events where artists were selling their wares. His efforts resulted in collecting almost 200 items MADE BY VETERANS – of which a portion of those art pieces are now offered in our first auction.
Please help us honor Howard and honor the active military and veteran ranks that are supported by the Freedom Center. The section below highlights additional photos of some the the items we are auctioning off. A portion of your purchase/donation may be deductible. Please consult your tax advisor.

Beth, a volunteer said: "My family have always been huge military supporters. I have 2 nephews that are currently serving in the Air Force and I know how much they appreciate military lounges wherever they go."
