Veterans Day is fast approaching. You know how I know? All the Veterans Day sales.
Seriously though, if you check the calendar, you will find it on Wednesday, November 11. My dad was a vet of the Korean War. He never talked much about it, but I do have some precious pictures of him which give me a glimpse of his time far away from home.
There are several freebies available for veterans to thank them for their service. In no way can they be totally repaid, but I hope the men and women who served feel appreciated and honored by taking advantage of these free offers. Be sure to read the fine print to make sure you know all the details like date, time, proof of service, etc. Some of these offers may also be available for active duty members of the service. Be sure to ask!
McCormick and Schmicks is offering a free meal on Sunday, November 8. Space is limited and reservations are required.
