We have compiled a list of freebies for Veterans this Veterans Day listed in alphabetic order for your convenience. If you know of a freebie not listed below, please let us know! Have fun, enjoy, and thank you for your service!
Remember: Always check with the establishment in your area, not all locations on these lists are participating. You will also want to ensure you have proof of your service (Military ID, Drivers Licence with Veterans Designation, DD214, a photo ID in uniform, wearing your uniform, or some other proof of service). Finally, always ask your server/cashier/attendant for the discount, don’t assume they know about the discount or freebie… plus, you know what they say about assuming… ;)
