If you or any of your family members are active military personnel or veterans, make sure you know (or let your family members know) about all the great deals. Many restaurants around the nation are discounting meals or even giving away free meals to veterans and active military. 

Along with deals on meals, there are other great deals for Veteran's Day. I think it's great that so many companies will offer discounts and freebies, it's a shame it's only one day a year! The people who have protected our country should be recognized more often! If you're out at a restaurant or store this weekend, say "thank you" if you see a veteran or active military.
