Military.com has compiled a list of free or reduced goods and services offered to servicemembers, veterans and their families by businesses and organizations in honor of Veterans Day. The list will continue to be updated as it gets closer to Nov. 11.
Most businesses require proof of military service, which can include a VA health identification card, military ID, DD-214 or veterans service organization card (e.g., The American Legion, VFW, DAV, AMVETS, MOAA, FRA, etc.). In some cases businesses will accept a picture of the veteran in uniform.
Note: Not all franchise locations participate in their national chain’s Veterans Day programs, so contact your nearest establishment to make sure they are participating.
