This may be of some interest, and I haven't touched on the 'Free Food' stuff - though I think it's covered if you click on it.


The following is a list of Veterans Day discounts offered by retailers for 2017.

All of the discounts have been confirmed, either through press release or direct communication with the company. Check out all the other discounts being offered this Veterans Day.

Keep in mind that most businesses require proof of military service, which can include a VA Universal Access Card, Military ID, DD-214 (Discharge Papers), Veterans Service Organization Card (VSO's include groups like the VFW, DAV, AmVets, MOAA, FRA, and the American Legion), a state-issued ID that shows veteran status or in some cases businesses will accept a picture of the veteran in uniform.

I guess it was last year my brother and I went to Hurricane Wings and they had a couple of Veteran's Day specials and we used our VA ID cards for verification.
I've seen wallet sized DD 214s before too.

Always found it interesting that many places offer meals to us on Veterans Day...anyone ever think about who puts on the many events on that day. Many of us have been working all day for weeks in preparation for events on that day, we are tied up most of the day and exhausted when the event is over. We need rain checks for grub the day after, we could take a lunch break from cleaning up from the previous day. Seems sorta like mom cooking Mothers Day meal. I’m still smiling, but don’t try it with mom.

I am in Minneapolis this week and I guess I will have to celebrate alone. I am usually back home helping with a parade or some other veteran event.

God Bless All of our Veterans.
