We can’t possibly say Thank You enough to all of the brave and patriotic men and women who have and continue to fight for our country’s independence and rights every single day!

Veterans are honored on Veterans Day, November 11 every year (and every other day too).

This year Veterans Day is on Wednesday, the 11th of November.

NOTE the dates for the offers – some are valid on 11/11 and others on completely different days, or over the course of several days.

There are always a TON of FREEbies for veterans and active military every year.  2020 is certainly no exception.

Check out what’s FREE for Veterans Day and keep checking back as the list will GROW to well over 100 FREE OFFERS!

NOTE – Don’t assume that the promotions will be the same as last year.  Many restaurants have been forced to change and/or suspend promotions due to shutdowns and limited service.  Call ahead always!
