1944 · The G.I Bill

Age 2

The G.I. Bill was a law that provided a range of benefits for returning World War II veterans that were on active duty during the war and weren't dishonorably discharged. The goal was to provide rewards for all World War II veterans. The act avoided life insurance policy payouts because of political distress caused after the end of World War I. But the Benefits that were included were: Dedicated payments of tuition and living expenses to attend high school, college or vocational/technical school, low-cost mortgages, low-interest loans to start a business, as well as one year of unemployment compensation. By the mid-1950s, around 7.8 million veterans used the G.I. Bill education benefits.

Since then, the Frankenmuth store has expanded to a 27 acre landscaped lot with over 50,000 Christmas related items in his store. Bronner's attracts over two million guests per year.
1957 · Mighty Mac

Age 15

"The 26,372 foot Mackinac Bridge was built to span the Straits of Mackinac which connects the Upper and Lower Peninsulas of the state of Michigan.

The bridge opened on November 1, 1957."

Name Meaning

English: ostensibly an occupational name for a laborer, from Middle English work + man. According to a gloss cited by Reaney the term was used in the Middle Ages to denote an ambidextrous person, and the surname may also be a nickname in this sense.
