Veterans Day Freebies & Deals 2013

Veterans Day Freebies & Discounts

It is that time of year again and being a Vet myself I am happy to see so many companies giving back as many of us have made many sacrifices to serve our country. Please share this list with a Veteran you may know..

Helpful Tips:

  • Be sure to bring proof of military service, uniform photo or be in
    uniform. Proof of military service varies by company. Acceptable forms
    of ID include (but not limited to) DD214, Military ID, Retired Military
    ID, Drivers License with Veteran designation, American Legion/VFW/AMVET
    Membership Card.
  • Pay attention to the dates on the Veterans Day offer as some offers
    are for Sunday November 10th or extended over several days.
  • Many of the restaurants free meals are for dine in
    only.
  • Many of these promotions include small print that says
    participating locations only. Unfortunately individual franchisees may
    choose not to participate. Fortunately, some franchisee’s participate
    even if the corporate company does not. Please call the restaurant
    before you leave home to make sure they are taking part.
  • Most importantly, Thank you for your service!
