This year’s Veterans Day will be different, but for American veterans and active duty soldiers, there are still free gifts and a lot of discounts.
Due to the pandemic, many transactions in restaurants and businesses are good in-store and online-although it is best to call ahead to confirm. Most of these transactions are valid for veterans and active-duty soldiers with proof of service.
Here are some examples of the best Veterans Day events this year.
