If you’re a U.S. Military veteran, first I want to say we can’t thank you enough for your service. Second I want to let you know that a number of freebies await you this weekend – as a small, but well deserved, show of appreciation.
Applebees: All veterans and active duty military eat free from a special limited menu today. (Nov 11.) To get your free meal, wear your uniform or show your military ID
Golden Corral: On Nov 15th from 5pm to 9pm, is their Military Appreciation Monday Dinner. This is the 10th year in a row they are holding the event.
McCormick & Schmick’s Seafood Restaurants: For the 12th year, they will be offering a complimentary entree to veterans from a special menu. (Limited space, so make reservations.)
Outback Steakhouse: On Veteran’s Day, all vets and active duty receive a free Bloomin’ Onion and non-alcoholic beverage.
Subway: Some, but not all (so call to check), of Subway restaurants across the country will be giving free 6-inch subs to vets and active duty military.
Foot Locker: U.S. Active Duty Military, National Guard, Reserves, veterans and their families with Foot Locker Veterans Advantage Cards receive a 20-percent discount every day of the year. That offer is good both online and at any store location, including Foot Locker, Lady Foot Locker, Kids Foot Locker, Footaction and Champs Sports — even on sale items.
Home Depot: They offer a 10% discount (up to a $500 maximum) to all active military, reserve, retired or disabled veterans and their family members with a valid military ID. All other veterans qualify for a 10% discount during Veterans Day, Memorial Day and Independence Day.

All other veterans receive the 10% discount on Veteran’s Day, Memorial Day and the Fourth of July. Check the store for limitations. You must present a valid military I.D. card to receive this special discount.
