Veterans Day is November 11th. And once again many businesses are offering Veterans Day Deals to honor our brave men and women. I love that companies provide these offers every year. It’s a small gesture for a tremendous sacrifice!
Don’t forget, some establishments require proof of service, such as the following: U.S. Uniform Service ID card, U.S. Uniform Services Retired ID card, current LES, show up in uniform, American Legion or VFW member card, or DD Form 214.
