Veterans and active military personnel can get a bunch of freebies and discounts on Veterans Day (11/11). Find them all here.
Today is Veterans Day. For some, it’s a day to thank the veterans. For others, it’s a remembrance of the time spent defending our freedom. And for restaurants, it’s a way to offer Veteran’s Day deals to say thank you.
I know a free burger isn’t enough to say thank you.
There’s no big enough way to say thank you, thank you for leaving your families so we can stay free with ours; thank you for becoming friends and family with other servicemen and women so you can all serve the best way possible, thank you for trusting those in command; thank you for missing holidays and birthdays so we can be safe at home.
Both my grandpas were a veterans, serving before my time but still serving nonetheless, and today just reminds me of the sacrifices they made, decades ago, so that I could be free.
If you are a serviceman or woman, or a veteran, my heart is with you and your family today. If you’re a veteran (or actively serving, but on shore duty), I’m glad you’re home with your family and hope you can take advantage of these deals. And if you’re actively serving and deployed, I can’t wait until you’re home and can take advantage of these deals another year.
