Whereas, in 1945, the Detroit Board of Commerce promoted the extension of 
        Victory Loans to veterans returning from service in the United States

        the veterans' wartime service, and raised more than half of the total 
        amount contributed in Wayne County, Michigan;
Whereas, in 1969, the Detroit Board of Commerce, then known as the Greater 
        Detroit Chamber of Commerce, was instrumental in the establishment of a

        resulted in the creation of the Southeast Metropolitan Transportation 
        Authority, now known as SMART;
