Here’s What’s Free For Veteran’s Day
QC area businesses are saluting veterans and active-duty military personnel Monday.
They’re offering free meals, treats and special discounts on Veterans Day to show their appreciation for all those who have sacrificed for the country.
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.
