When was the last time you thanked a serviceman or servicewomen? While Veterans Day on Monday, November 11, is the national day of observance for those who have served our country, active-duty military members and veterans alike deserve recognition year-round. No matter where you stand, it is indeed the dedication and hard work of our military that has protected our right to basic freedoms. That's why it's such a treat to tell you about all of these deals available for veterans and active-duty military members this weekend. As always, it's best to check in with your nearest restaurant location to be sure they are observing these deals, as well.
This Veteran's Day due to the Coronavirus pandemic, most, if not all, locations do not require you to dine-in and the deal will be available for pick-up and takeout. Some locations are also extending their deals through the month of November.
