    I appreciate those businesses that provide freebies or discounts, and especially Home Depot and Lowes who do this every day for products to the military. But I’m really surprised that many more businesses don’t do anything that I’m personally aware of. And I’m speaking here about those businesses like the Dallas Cowboys or others, because major league sports franchises, who could afford to give seats to maybe 25 or so to a game, and other businesses who have high margin products or services, and could also afford to.
    I don’t intend here to shame any businesses because I don’t have firsthand knowledge, just say that I’m sure that more businesses could more to honor those who have served their country.

    • Ryan Guina says

      Darryl, many major professional sports teams have military appreciation events or offer discounts to military members. The offers vary by team and league. So it would be best to search the specific team’s websites for more information.

    I think some Vets are just overjoyed about the offerings. It is fun. One Veterans Day I drove around my mom and she got lots of freebies until she was tired. Another Veterans Day we got nothing but were grateful for the offerings. This Veterans day she got a few things. But her soul was settled to know that she and other military were cherished. I applaud all of the places that took time to give honor and encouragement. Self-sacrifice and service are traits to be applauded. I also appreciated the atmosphere; in these uncertain times you can get much safer that being a restaurant full of military. 🙂

    My hubby came home &
    got spit on & cussed out when he got off the plane by mean spirited creeps in ’67. He was in the Nam Era & it took almost 50 yrs to see a tear drop @ the Wa DC Memorial when he went to honor a fellow Officer, then saw 4 more buddies that hadn’t made it back to their families. He’s always happy when we go out for a free meal on Vet Day..as he now feels the country’s gotten a change of heart…so I think it’s healing for those boys that got trashed.

    U. S. Navy, 12 Years, 1976-1987. There is a blessing in being able to give something to someone in appreciation. For businesses to offer free meals, hair-cuts, car washes, etc., is a blessing. But there is also a blessing in accepting these gifts of appreciation. So if a business is blessing you with a freebie, you are blessing them with your acceptance. I for one take advantage of these blessings. Usually a breakfast, lunch and dinner. But, I also tip well over the 20% recommended for the full cost of the meal. That’s blessing the wait staff for their service. Love and blessing flow in many directions!


    Did 6 years in the Navy. Over 20 years later enlisted in the navy reserves, right before 9-11. Volunteered to do what I could. I’m a chef by the way, not a great need but I was still willing. Never once have I expected anything free or a discount on a purchase. If something is offered sure I’ll take it, but no one owes me anything. I enlisted in the service, before me you were drafted. Still no one is entitled to anything. I appreciate being thanked for my service and if there is an offering I will accept it with gratitude. Again, never will I expect anything, I did a job, took my paycheck, moved on when I was done.

  8. Sal says

    I appreciate the restaurants that offer there thanks to a veteran. Most vets go to eat
    With other people, so don’t feel cheap, feel proud that these restaurants want to
    Thank you for your service to our great country. “ DON’T BE A HOG” and don’t
    Forget to pay the tip on the full amount these wait people do work hard. I am a
    Vietnam vet. And I may go to a restaurant this Veterans Day and will appreciate
    That fact that they are thanking me.

  9. robert wagner says

    I do go to a double of restaurants on veterans day.I also get a haircut. But I also patronize th ese restaurants during the year to show my thanks.also how can a person eat more than 2 or 3 meals in a day?

  10. Lafayette says

    Just think of all the places having Veterans Day Sales on Veterans Day that does not benefit one Veteran. I Thank and Appreciate all the restaurants who provide freebies on this day. We don’t get much so when it happens we should enjoy it’s like our own Thanksgiving Holiday. And to try to shame some one for enjoying this ONE day we get after sacrificing OUR LIVES is just self righteous of someone to try and shame Veterans for enjoying such a time. To each is on, you enjoy it your way and let others enjoy it theirs. Some of our brothers and sisters didn’t make it back and some are still in service hoping to make it back alive and intact mental and physically. So eat up, eat up, and if you got room eat up.(Yes you should tip good servers.)

  11. Dini says

    Veterans complaining about another Veteran taking a thank you gift? Why be so petty and judgmental? Who anointed anyone else the police for taking thank you gifts of meals?

    Once upon a time, no one did anything for the Veterans. This is long after 9/11 and long after we were sending personnel back from the sandbox in pieces. It took many years before any business started saying thank you. For the veterans who served before this, you bet they are appreciative and they enjoy the day. It is one day they can be publicly proud of their service and receive a bit of a thank you. Do not begrudge them.

    • Andy Anderson says

      I agree the number of Vets that may “take advantage” of these offers are minimal to those that are thankful of the recognition, remember once you put that uniform on their was no guarantee that you’d be coming home, and as for us guys during the Nam era, my exit interview back to the ZI was ‘lay low, don’t wear the uniform in the public and don’t be vocal about your time overseas” in so many words, all I can say is please tip the waiters and waitresses based on the full value of the meal…20% at least…..:)

      • Judith Hicks says

        Disabled Gulf War here — I agree. My dad was Marine Corps Gunny from multiple Vietnam tours. Definitely no ticker tape for those guys. They were to live in shame by protesters back home. He won’t even take Veterans Day Discount opportunities due to inability to leave his house. Remember THOSE guys. I’m Navy blue myself. SEMPER FI, dad!

  12. Emily says

    Thank you for posting this list. I still tip the wait staff because they still need to be paid. I have a friend that never tips and it’s to the point that I am so embarrassed that I end up tipping double what I should to cover her. I am not rich and I know she has money to pay her own tip and chooses not too. Yes, some vets take advatage, but not all. Thank you for showing us your gratitudet, it means a lot.

  13. Danny says

    It’s a shame that on this day some veterans go as far as getting 10 freebies from each restaurant. 10 pizzas, 10 hotdogs and donut, by going around different stores. This really give us other veterans a bad name and image. You are not homeless, why are you doing this? Some people just don’t know their limit and take greed to the next level. Not all vetetans are just into freebies, but even I’m ashamed of them.

    • Joe says

      As far as greed those Veterans that are gluttons about the freebies although “Freedom isn’t Free” have to live with themselves. I am a Veteran and I take advantage of what others offer Vets and I also thank those businesses for their generosity and commitment in supporting the Vets.

    • CJ says

      They are veterans. They deserve everything free for the rest of their lives for the sacrifices they made. Take it all….it’s one day. They deserve to be treated way better than they are.

    • Lauren says

      My rule is, whatever I get for free from restaurants, I give back to the waiter in their tip. I don’t need the freebie, but appreciate that they are going out of their way to appreciate me.

    • Big Nate says

      Ashamed!!! Danny if you spend your life worrying about what others do. What kind of life would you have. Are you a chronic complainer? Do you observe all veterans, like follow them around or do you sit in one restaurant all day or go back & forth with them…Find something better to do with your Veterans Day. How do you know that they aren’t homeless & that this isn’t the only decent meal that they eat all year. Don’t ever hate on another Veterean. Cause what he gave for this country, can’t be replaced… The freebies are for vets for Veterans Day. They are entitled. No theft no crime… I go out with a crew of vet friends. It’s the only time we get together. I may visit a restaurant twice. If my daughters want something or my wife wants something.. let’s enjoy the day set aside in remembrance of our sacrifices… Semper Fidelis…

      • Dave says

        What if these people that do that gave it to some of our homeless vets? No harm in that ! Not all the homeless vets have a way to to these places . So ooh rah!

      • Sandra Wade says

        Enjoy Veterans Day! It’s the way our community wants to thank us. Let them.
        Happy Marine Corps Birthday and Happy Veterans Day.

    • Kathy says

      You know if one day they go around getting treated like royalty SoWhat Many carry scars everyday due to their sacrifice big deal if they go to a few restaurant or take advantage of a free offer The government and some citizens give more to illegals

    • Megan Darling says

      Actually, I pick up all the freebies I can, NO SHAME, and redistribute those freebies to homeless or housebound veterans who can’t go to the restaurants. I tell the wait staff what I’m doing and they are happy to offer to-go plates so I can do it.

  14. Dre says

    Small correction. LOWES does offer the 10% discount daily to veterans. I’ve been using it for a year now. also, by getting a My Lowes reward card, you can get this benefit online.
