Again this year, many restaurants are offering freebies for Veterans Day.
These deals usually apply to veterans, active duty military personnel, guard and reserve members, and all retired service members.
To get most of these free offers, you’ll need some kind of proof of service, such as an ID card or just wearing your uniform. But as with most all offers, you want to check with your local restaurant to make sure they are participating and double check to see what kind of ID, if any, you should bring.
Here is the big list of restaurants offering free meals to veterans this Veteran’s Day.
Not in the military or a veteran? Be sure to share this post with all the service members and veterans you know!
