Thank you Veterans + long list of discounts and freebies for vets this weekend

On Nov. 11, 2013, America will pay tribute to the men and women who have served the nation. 

We have several veterans in our family and many friends who have served over the decades, and so appreciate the many sacrifices that these brave men and women endure.

Words cannot express the gratitude we have for ALL veterans and their families each and every day … but especially on this Veterans Day we say THANK YOU from the bottom of our hearts!

We also wanted  to share a link to the U.S. First Responders Association that has a long list of discounts and freebies at restaurants, recreational sites and retail stores for active duty military and veterans. Some offers are good all weekend while others are valid on Veterans Day. And some companies offer military discounts year-round so if you are a veteran, it never hurts to ask.

The offers are subject to change or may not be offered at a particular location, so call ahead to confirm a discount is being offered. Most businesses require proof of military service and a current military identification card or a DD Form 214 will usually suffice.

Have a nice, safe Veteran’s Day weekend … and thank you again to all who have served. j & B

    Thank you! I served in the Coast Guard from 2000 to 2004. No Joke, I took the oath on Sep. 11, 2000.

    Thank you to your family that has served.
