Remember Our Vets

Tomorrow is Veteran’s Day; this is a time to honor those men and women who have made sacrifices so that we can be free.  If you haven’t already, hug a Vet (or a Vet’s family member) today and tell them “thank you.”

Here is a list of Veterans Day discounts on restaurants, goods, services and events for 2014 (note that this is a National List–not all of these activities are available in our area):

The following is a list of Veterans Day discounts on restaurants, goods, services and events for 2014. Please check back frequently as the list is updated.

    Keep in mind that most businesses require proof of military service, which can include a VA Universal Access Card, Military I.D., DD-214 (Discharge Papers), Veterans Service Organization Card (VSO’s include groups like the VFW, DAV, AmVets, MOAA, FRA, and the American Legion), or in some cases businesses will accept a picture of the veteran in uniform.

    Note: Not all franchise locations participate in their national chain’s Veterans Day programs — be sure contact your nearest establishment to make sure they are participating.
