On November 11th our nation will celebrate Veterans Day (originally called Armistice Day) to honor America’s veterans for their patriotism, love of country, and willingness to serve and sacrifice for the common good.
One way businesses and organizations show their appreciation to veterans and active duty military is by offering discounts and freebies at restaurants, recreational sites, and retail stores.
Some deals start this weekend and extend out for days or a few weeks, while most are valid on Veterans Day only.
Take a moment to review Veterans Day 2014 discounts and deals for troops post on the U.S. First Responders Association forum … and please share the information with veterans and active duty troops you know. (The list is also available in a 6-page PDF so easy to print and share.)
Words cannot express the appreciation we have for our military (2- and 4-legged troops and vets) and their families … and we thank you ALL from the bottom of our hearts! j & B

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.
Click the above graphic or visit USFRA to view the special deals and offers … and there is a 3-page PDF at bottom of the post (just above the comments box) in case you’d like to download and share it with others.
Have a nice, safe Veteran’s Day weekend … and thank you again to all who have served. j & B
