    Great job.  I love the set up, It’s amazing . Great choice of colors.  “Browse the list of free meals Veterans Day and enjoy the Red Lobster Veterans Day special or one of the other great FREE Veterans Day meals 2022. Most offers are valid on Veterans Day only, but a handful are valid all weekend” This is Informative and kind to provide these type of information via Affiliation..

    • Alyce says:

      Hi, Brian! Thanks for the feedback! It’s great to see how veterans are being thanked for their service on Veterans Day, and in some cases, over the entire weekend!

  2. Carol Barnes says:

    Very good article on Veterans Day Freebies, 2022. There are so many freebies for veterans and the public. There appears to be something for everyone included here.

    I have a son who was in the Air Force for 20 years, so I definitely appreciate Veterans Day and all that you have included here. Thank you.

  3. Kevin Deaney says:

    You have written a great post with Veterans Day Freebies 2022. You have done lots of research and included so many freebies for veterans and the general public alike.

    I am sure there is something for everyone included. I am glad there are so many things available to veterans. It is a small way to show them how appreciated they are.

    If I had chance to use any of the free Veterans Day deals it would have to be Free Entrance Day to US National Parks. But since I am so far away from any I hope that anyone who gets to benefit from that has a great time.

    • Alyce says:

      Hi Kevin, it’s awesome to see so many great freebies for Veterans on Veterans Day! Most of the special offers are only good for veterans, but anyone can visit US National Parks for free on Veterans Day. The parks offer free admission on Veterans Day every year, so perhaps in the future, you’ll be able to plan in advance and see a park of your choice for free!
