If you are a military member or veteran, you can take advantage of special Veterans Day discounts and services.
On Nov. 11, retailers and restaurants across the U.S. offer promotions to veterans to honor their service. You can enjoy a free breakfast at IHOP if you’ve ever served in the military.
IHOP’s Veterans Day promotion is only available at participating locations, so double-check with your local restaurant before you go.
