Plenty of businesses are having free items to honor those who serve in the military. This Wednesday, November 11th is Veterans Day, a day when we honor those who have served and are currently serving in the U.S. military. There are many parades and celebrations throughout the United States to thank them for their bravery and selflessness. Restaurants and other businesses also give back to our armed forces with various deals and freebies on Veteran's Day. Here are some of the businesses that will be participating on that day. Many of the businesses ask that you bring some form of I.D. or proof that you were in the military so make sure you bring it.
