Veteran’s Day is November 11, 2016 and as a Thank you to our service members, both past and present there are many places that Veterans, Retired Military Members, Active Duty Military Members and National Guard Members can go to get free meals. I think it is awesome and Tom and I are both Veterans so it makes for a budget friendly date day for us. Make sure you pass on this information to anyone you know who is a Veteran or Active Duty so they can snag a free meal too!
