    I just wanted to take a moment to thank you for sharing these great thank you offerings from so many companies!

    It’s nice to see so many stepping forward and offering everything from free meals and haircuts to great discounts on airfare and free vehicle checks.

    I am not a veteran myself but have several friends who are.  I will definitely share this page with them.  That said, I’m loving the free national park access for all too.

    Thanks again.  I love it when people share things like this.  It goes to show that there are those that care and appreciate the sacrifices our veterans have, are and will make.

    Thank you so much for the awesome post!  I have a few friends who will want to read this article because they are vets.  I have not got to hangout with them lately, and we love going out to eat.  I saw that Applebees has a free meal for vets.  They will appreciate that so I think we will be going to Applebees today now!  Thank you!
