Offering our veterans a discount or even a free meal i the least we can do to say thank you this Veterans Day weekend. Here a just some of the deals going on for our men and women who served in the armed forces.

This weekend we honor the brave men and women who have served in our military. A free breakfast or meal discount may not seem like a lot in the grand scheme of things but it's a nice gesture to show our appreciation. Veterans and those who are serving in active duty are not in it for the praise but be sure to give it to them and thank a veteran this weekend.
