As the granddaughter of a Veteran, daughter of a Veteran, sister of a Veteran, and a wife of a Veteran, Veterans Day has always been special to me. It's a day to say thank you, though I believe we should say thank you all the time.

I remember years ago we were eating at a restaurant and my husband was in his uniform. The waiter at the end of our meal said it has been paid for by a family who wanted to thank my husband for his service. I have to tell you that I saw my husband's eyes tear up and so did mine. Living in a military town, we are surrounded by our heroes all the time and that is one of the many reasons why I love living here.

Here are some deals for our veterans on Veterans Day, Please make sure and check that they are participating locations.
