Here’s a positive thread, a fair amount of restaurants are offering a free meal if you’re a vet on Veterans Day.

Get on it I say, take a friend or family member, or get them to take you out for a meal and say thanks!


The List

A very good thing. Canada doesn't have a lot of those places, at least not where I am, but I'm sure there are Canadian restaurants that do as well.

Wonderful! The more restaurants that do this, the better.

Local casinos in Vegas are great for vets on veterans day, pretty much all of them give a free meal, and some give even more. Not sure about ones on the strip, locals tend to avoid the strip like the plague lol.

I say a vet should go to 1 of them get the free food, put 10 bucks in the tip jar and walk out and give the food of a homeless person...


Now repeat 5 times...

Show some respect.

95 Restaurants Offering Free Food.

Places like Olive Garden, TGIs, Chilis and On The Border are doing full meals with drinks. Krispey Kreme are doing free donut and coffee and Starbucks are offering a free coffee to vet/serving families as well. Not bad at all and good for them.


Many others have *small print* saying free appetizers as part of a paid meal.

Doesn't happen enough in the UK afaik. There's free rail travel for the weekend and a lot of indie pubs/restaurants offer a free meal. No big chains apart from Toby Carvery.

The worker at the place is working hard show respect to them. The homeless on the street I don't know who they are, but ya that is for another time...

I don't find just giving money to a homeless person any form of respect, but if you tip good on a free meal...now that is respect...

Actually I'm working on vet day, but my peers are going to bring in food on Monday, think this time it is a chili cook off, so all is good...

Sounds great.


I'm hoping to get to a chilli market today for some killer sauces and jams.

Doesn’t really happen in Australia much either.

11th November is a bit more low key here though, ANZAC day is more the day we celebrate/remember our troops.

How are you guys on the silence? Over here it's taken very seriously. I've been in a walmart/ASDA maybe 5 years ago and people stopped in the aisles. Most towns will stop traffic for a parade etc. The silence has been honoured every time I can remember.

Usually pretty good.

Don’t think traffic stops though.

Food aside, it is the respect that makes this what it is.
Thank you for all who make this happen.

Huh, that's something I wish we'd do here.

I'll be taking my sisters out. I wish my Dad was still here to do that for.

It's a small thing, but it means a lot to the veterans I know.
