Veterans Day Discounts/Freebies

Veterans Day has always been a very special day in our house, even when I was young, and not yet married to a military man.  Attending the Veterans Day Parade in our small town was the highlight of our day.  Now that I’m married to a military man, it’s no different. I am thankful for so many wonderful companies that go out of their way to make that day special for those that serve, and their families.  Here’s a rundown of some of the key discounts, including some for specific states that stood out.  You can search for more discounts in your area code at the Military and Veteran’s Discount Center’s website.

I pray that those of you that have your loved one home with you this Veteran’s Day enjoys that wonderful time together, while we keep in our thoughts and prayers those that cannot celebrate this day of honor and remembrance.
