2018 Veterans Day Free Meals & Discounts

Every year on Veterans Day, many restaurants and businesses across the nation offer free meals and discounts to our veterans in gratitude for their service. While we know most veterans don’t seek or desire the thanks they deserve, we hope you’ll take advantage of some of the offers we’ve gathered below. Please note, most places require a valid proof of service, such as your Military ID. Enjoy – and thank you for your service!

Please feel free to comment below with any places we’ve missed, and share this list with any veterans you know. Additionally, we hope you’ll consider our 11 Ways to Support Veterans this Veterans Day if you are not a veteran. We hope they all receive the gratitude they deserve this Veterans Day, Sunday, November 11th!
