Free Meals or Discount Meals for Military and Veterans

Once again this year many restaurants are giving away free meals, or discounts on menu items to
active duty military and veterans. There is a very good list on Facebook, that is constantly updated.
you can find the list here Veterans Day Free Meals

I did notice that a few require valid ID cards, you may want to check in advance to see if they will
accept a DD-214 for those of us who are not in the VA system and do not have an ID. They might
accept Drivers License or ID Card with the Veterans designation. Just check in advance

A very large thank you to the participating restaurants that are providing this wonderful tribute
and honor to our troops.

Once again the issue of a government ID card, as H.R. 2985 which would make an ID Card
available to all veterans is an issue that must be pursued.  Contact you Representative to demand
the bill be brought to the floor for a full vote, and vote for passage.
