Free doughnuts. Free pizza. Free burgers and fries. I thought that’d get your attention. But sorry, it’s not for you. Well, unless you’re a veteran. In which case, it is.
The following local restaurants and businesses are offering free goodies to say thank you to those who have served our country in the United States military. Because Veterans Day falls on a Sunday this year, some are observing it on Sunday, and others on Monday. So pay special attention to the dates.
“As America’s Diner, we take great pride in honoring our country’s servicemen and women,” said John Dillon, chief marketing officer for Denny’s. “Each year we look forward to welcoming these heroes into our booths nationwide for a great breakfast on us, just a small way to thank them for their service and dedication to our great country.”
