Veterans Day is a day for honoring military veterans, thanking and honoring all the military veterans and people who have served in the United States Armed Forces.

Every year local businesses and restaurants come together and give FREE meals or FREE extras to the veterans. Personally, this should happen every day, FREE for the veterans. We are so very thankful for you.
