While we're thankful to our soldiers and military all year long, today is the day we "officially" set aside to honor those who have served in our Armed Forces. Some businesses are advertising online that they are honoring our service members by giving them freebies or discounts (note, most require proof of service, so be sure to check the details):
Applebee's - Choose from one of seven free meals.
Chili's - Choose from one of six free meals.
Hooter's - Choose from one of four free new speciality meals.
Outback Steakhouse - Free Bloomin' Onion, and non-alcoholic drink.
Home Depot and Lowe's - 10% discount every day for Veterans.
Arby's - Free Roast Beef Sandwich.
Build-a-Bear Workshop - Get some Christmas shopping done early, and share your patriotism with a child at Build-a-Bear workshops. They have a great selection of military-themed teddy bears, and are offering 20% off this week (see add in header, and use add code 95516 if shopping online).
