Veterans Day is just short week away and should not go unobserved by anyone who appreciates a free America. It’s because of those brave men and women who served or are still serving that we enjoy the freedom and independence we all cherish.
So, with that being said, let’s also throw out some kudos to the free-market establishments across the country who beat us to the punch in recognizing the sacrifices our vets and currently serving military personnel made for us.

Applebee’s and many, many other wonderful restaurants across the country are thanking our military by offering them a free meal.
If you are a veteran and wish to celebrate your own service to the country, why not take them up on a dinner at any one of the Applebee’s locations across the country? They want to honor you on Veterans Day.
On Sunday, Nov. 11, veterans can choose from a limited menu at any Applebee’s as the restaurant chain promotes #MillionMealsForHeroes.
“On Veterans Day, Sunday, November 11th, Applebee’s is on a mission to serve one million meals to neighborhood military heroes. For the 11th year, all veterans and active duty military are invited to visit their local Applebee’s on Veterans Day to enjoy a free, full-size entrée from a selection of eight fan favorites,” reads the Applebee’s website.

It’s impossible for this country to express how much it appreciates its veterans contributions to its freedom, but a good meal is a great start.
