Happy Veteran’s Day! 5 Places Veterans Eat Free

share small

November 11th , 2012 was the day set aside to thank all Veterans for their Military service.  Because Veteran’s Day fell on a Sunday this year, it will be observed Monday the 12th for many. Taking the opportunity to thank a Vet, is very important to our family. Mainly due to the fact that uniforms of the various Military branches have hung in the closets of nearly everyone in our clan! Our Grandpa, Sisters, Brothers, and 3 in- laws served in the United States Air Force. A brother-in-law and Uncle proudly served in the Navy, and countless family members adorned their chest with recognition of dedicated service in the US Army.  So, we usually celebrate by gathering together at one of our favorite restaurants that thank Vets by feeding them for free! My favorite Vet, The Hubby, Retired Air Force; loves a great buffet. So thankfully, we will head to our local Golden Corral to eat till we hurt.

    I love that Veterans get a free meal on Veterans Day! My step-dad usually heads to Applebee’s for dinner because they have a special dinner menu (it’s 5-7 meals) that are all free for Veterans. That, and he always gets a free car wash :) My daughter was gone all day tomorrow, but we are heading up with a special card and some cupcakes for him today to say “Thank you” and let him know that we appreciate all he has done for the country.

      That’s wonderful Jessie! I am going to have to look for the free car wash offer, hope there is one in our area. :) I bet your step-dad really appreciates the efforts y’all take to honor him today. Thanks for your comment and Happy Veteran’s Day.

      Hi Sadie, Please thank your Mom for her service! Glad that she had a happy day. I ended up finding out that there are so many free things, we needed a longer time to celebrate. This is a very good thing. Thanks for dropping by :)
