Military Free Meals, Discounts and Perks on Veteran’s Day
Veteran's Day falls on Wednesday, November 11. This is one of the few days we get reminded people serve from all over the country giving us the very freedoms we enjoy. Wednesday we celebrate military members who served and currently serve.
I would tell people that the United States Navy and all military services have this unspoken rule. You can complain about the military all you want, how much you can't wait to get out and just go down the line. That said, don't disrespect the military in public because all bets are off. It's like that family code meaning I can complain about my family but you better keep it closed! That's love right there.
I was just thinking you could have free breakfast, lunch, haircut, and dinner for free on Wednesday.
Please share this with someone you know in the military so they can take advantage. Here's your list of Veteran's Day Discounts and Freebies.
