Most companies require some form of military ID or proof of military service. These include:

Participation

Second, always call ahead to verify locations, times, and participation. Many of the listed companies are franchises and may have different policies.

We will do our best to keep this page updated as we find new info, but the only way to guarantee you get your Veterans Day meal is by calling ahead and checking with your location.

Tipping

This one may be a no-brainer, but you should tip your server thoughtfully regardless of whether you ate a free meal or not.

In other words, please tip your wait-staff on the full meal price. Show your appreciation for their service. It’s the right thing to do!

    How about Wal-Mart, what do they offer to our people in the military? They don’t even give their associates the day off as a holiday if you are a vet.

    I know it is a bit late but…..last year when I went Homedepot to pick up a snow blower the cashier rang up my bill and then noticed the retired veterans hat I was wearing and then told me she had to clear the bill and ring it up again because she did not give me a 10% discount I had no idea before this time about the discount. Thank you Homedepot. I have been shopping there ever since

    Give a vet a simple thank you or better a handshake or a hug. That’s all we really want is to know we are appreciated for our sacrifices. While I agree that a vets spouse also sacrifices a lot I feel the spouses posting in here are just sounding greedy and not appreciative of their own military spouse I served for 24 years and my wife was there beside me the whole time and she would never ever expect what these people in here are expecting. She was honored when I retired that government and the military recognized her for her sacrifices as well and she loved the two letters of appreciation they gave her. I have never taken advantage of any free meals from businesses that offer them but I appreciate the thought. And as far as Home Depot vs Lowes is concerned I have also experienced heartache when asking if I get the 10% discount at Home Depot but never at Lowes and that is why Lowes will always get my business.
