Today is Veteran's day. The day we salute our veterans and those active in the military. Something we should do all year.
A nephew who works for Applebee's posted on his Facebook account that they were giving free meals to all veterans and active duty people (I don't know the details). I received an email from Red Robin that they were offering a free stack of onion rings (I can personally attest that these are good). I'm sure other restaurants are following suit.
I'm not going to list all of the ones I know this year. I looked back at my post from last year and reminded myself of a few of them. As I type this, I'm going to say a silent prayer of gratitude and prayer for safety for each of those.
Thank you for what you did and for what you do. Thank you for your service to your country. Thank you for protecting me.
I'm very glad that the tone of this country is to honor our nation's finest. It's what we should do.
