Veterans Day 2013 Deals, Discounts, and Freebies

In honor of our military and veteran families, I wanted to compile a list of Veterans Day deals, discounts, and freebies. My husband is also a veteran, so this day has a special place in my heart for our heroes and their families!

I’ve tried to provide the most up-to-date information, according to what I've found. I will be sure to add to this list if I happen to find additional deals and freebies.
If you have any questions or know of a discount that you would like to see included here, please feel free to let me know.

Please note: Offers and discounts may vary by location and region. I highly recommend contacting your local establishment to see if they are participating in the same promotion, prior to making a visit. You will also be required to prove your veteran status at any of these locations in order to take advantage of their promotions, so be sure to bring your government identification (or DD214, discharge papers, etc.).
