This Veterans Day, many restaurants and business are offering freebies and deals to the men and women of our armed forces. If you’re a veteran or an active member of the United States military, you can eat free for breakfast, lunch and dinner at chains across the country.
Keep in mind that many of these deals will require you to show your military ID or offer proof of service. We also recommend calling ahead to ensure your local franchise is participating.
