As we look forward to the 101st Veterans Day (Nov 11), we honor those who served by providing a list of discounts for veterans.
We want to thank all our military personnel around the globe who give us the freedoms we have. It’s your sacrifice that has given our country a backbone to stand on and a democracy to thrive.
Thank you to the families of our troops. It’s you who support those in the trenches and on the front lines. Without your love and perseverance, our men and women in uniform wouldn’t be able to do their jobs.
Thank you to those who support our military in ways most aren’t aware. Many businesses give resources and allow access to entertainment and travel so our troops can be treated right and taken care of here at home, a small exchange for the huge work they do abroad for all of us.
If you have served or are currently serving and are considering some family activities, meals, or a vacation, take advantage of the many offers available by these patriotic companies wanting to give back for all you have done for our country.
