https://news.va.gov/125193/2023-vete...ts-free-meals/

A list of businesses (mainly restaurants) offering special deals for veterans. I’ve tried a few of these deals before. Some have a separate limited menu for the veteran to choose from. Some have a free appetizer with a meal purchase. Some franchises of chain restaurants don’t participate in the offer. My wife and I may go out to eat on Veteran’s Day but I doubt I’ll look for any special deal.

We really like the Freddy’s and Texas Roadhouse deals. Stop by on Veteran’s Day and pick up a coupon for a free meal to use at a later date. Avoids the big crowds and long waits, and is easier for the restaurant, too.

I didn't think about much. But one of my cars did need servicing, I went out today, and while I was driving into town, I thought I would ask. They said yes, I showed them my DL with the Veteran declaration on it, and took it. Same thing when I ate in town afterwards, another target of opportunity.

Last year when I got my DL renewed, they asked me if I wanted it on that. After a moment of thinking, I said yes. By nature, perhaps anti this or that training, I am not one to declare what I have been......but that is just me. Further, they may not have asked.....if I had not used my DD214 to show my SSN.

One thing, if they have signs of discounts for retired, ask if they meant veteran. They may have, they may not know the difference, and it can't hurt. I've gotten discounts at my expensive pet eye doctor.

We stayed home. Wife had an all day migraine/headache. She feels a bit better today so we may head out later.

A local law office offered free wills to veterans. Figured at 72 years young, it's about time I had a will and a trust. They are applying the cost of the will toward a trust, so a pretty good deal for vets.

The mayor let me read the Veteran's Day city proclamation at the yearly city veteran recognition ceremony. My term on the city council is over in January, so this was a very nice gesture he gave me.
