Veteran’s Day is Monday, November 11th. I want to say THANK YOU to all of you (family members included) for all you do for our country. Many retailers and restaurants also want to say thank you. Below you will find a list of the deals and freebies available to you to honor you on your day!
Please remember that while your meal is free, the service really is not. When you leave a gratuity, please make sure that it is based upon the value of the meal and not the amount you pay. Your wait staff deserves to be paid for the work they provide, even if your meal is free. 😉
It is important to note that most of these offers will require proof of service. This can be verified with the following: U.S. Uniform Service ID card, U.S. Uniform Services Retired ID card, current LES, show up in uniform, American Legion or VFW member card, or DD Form 214.
