Veteran’s Day Military Freebies (November 11th)

Veteran’s Day is our time to thank those who have given up their own freedom to secure ours. If you or someone you know has ever been in the military you know how much they sacrifice. Not only are they working to keep our country free, they are giving up some of their own freedoms like where they will live, what hours they will work, and whether they will get to be home for their child’s birthday party. Unless you have lived the military lifestyle you would never understand what this is like.

Many business are now honoring members of the military on Veteran’s Day with freebies – free food, special discounts.

Some of the freebies happening this Veteran’s Day:
