Veterans Day Freebies + 2017 Military Discounts!
Veterans Day is November 11th. Every year MANY stores and restaurants have special Veterans Day Freebies or military discounts available for any active/reserve/retired Veterans. Many will include all first responders too. We’ve put together a giant alphabetical list of Veterans Day freebies and Military Discounts for 2017 below. Many of these support our veterans every year and some even year round.
Please not that most businesses that are providing the Veterans Day freebies and/or military discounts require some type of proof so be sure to have some form of military ID with you when you head out to be able to receive the offers! Also, it’s always a good idea to call ahead before heading out to confirm that your local stores or restaurants are participating in the offers!
