I think it's great how each year, more and more restaurants are taking the time to honor area Veterans with a free meal to show their appreciation for their service.

To take advantage of these promotions, you usually must show proof of your service.  Examples of this may include:  a current leave and earnings statement, a US Uniform Serice ID card, US Uniform Retired ID card, a photograph in uniform or wearing your uniform, a Veterans Organization Card, such as a American Legion or VFW ID or a DD214.

It's always a good idea to call ahead to see what they may require and to confirm that they are participating,

Restaurants participating on Sunday include:  Olive Garden, Red Lobster, Applebees

Restaurants participating on Monday include:  Denny's (all you can eat pancakes), Friendly's (breakfast only), and TGI Fridays (lunch 11am-2pm).

Enjoy a free meal.  You deserve it!
