Here is a list of restaurants and more that are offering Veterans Freebies or Deals. These deals are only for veterans or active military personnel. Most locations do require valid Military ID for discounts and freebies so be sure to read the details on each link. We highly recommend calling ahead since many of these locations have franchises and they may not all participate in these offers. Let us know in the comments if you know of any others.
It's especially poignant sharing this list with you. The featured picture is of my son in law and his unit. It was taken during his deployment.
Note: with Veterans Day on a Sunday this year, some events take place on Saturday, Sunday, or Monday.
