All the Places Vets Can Get Free Meals This Veterans Day
As they do each year, restaurants are saluting veterans by offering free food and meal deals.
Thanks to the federal holiday falling on Sunday, it's officially observed Monday. This leads to a split with some businesses showing their appreciation Sunday and others Monday.
Proof of service such as a military ID is typically required and a few businesses will allow dressing in uniform as a form of identification. Discharge papers, VA cards and veteran organization membership cards also can be used to prove service at most businesses.
Deals are available at participating locations and offers can vary. Check with your closest location to confirm.
Among the most well-known chains offering free meals and discounts are Applebee's, Bob Evans, Buffalo Wild Wings, Chili's, Cracker Barrel, Hooters, Little Ceaser, Olive Garden, and Outback Steakhouse.
