In observance of Veteran’s Day, several area restaurants are offering free or discounted meals to say thank you for your service. Most of the deals are available to veteran’s and active duty service members with proof of service identification: U.S. Uniformed Services ID Card; U.S. Uniformed Services Retired ID Card; current Leave and Earnings Statement (LES); veterans organization card (American Legion, VFW). I’m not saying these are the finest dining establishments in town, but in most cases they’re better than your average mess hall.
