Veterans Day Freebies and Discounts November 11, 2013

 Happy Veterans Day 
and thank you to all who have served
I would like to present you a list of businesses that would like to thank you as well

These offers are good November 11th, unless otherwise stated 
I will continue adding offers as I find them

Please note: If you choose to take part in any of these freebies or discounts you will need to bring in proof of your service, like a DD214, military ID, go in in uniform, a Leave and Earnings statement, or your VFW or Legions card. Military ID would be your best bet though.
