As Veterans Day approaches, many current and former servicemembers may be unaware of the special offers and promotions numerous companies will be running as a small token of gratitude for their time and service. Some stores will offer discounts on their products and a few restaurants will even be giving away free food.
It is generally a good idea to call ahead and see if your local retailer or restaurant franchise will be participating in the special Veterans Day promotions and deals.
