Now that Halloween is over, the next holiday we should all be putting our focus on is Veterans Day!

November 11th is a day that we show our appreciation for the sacrifices that these men and women have made.

There is a long list of restaurants at the Jersey Shore who are ready to show their appreciation by offering veterans and active military a free meal. Quite a few restaurants are asking that veterans show proof of service which can include wearing their uniform, showing a picture of them in the uniform, or by providing a military ID card.
