Default Attention Veterans! Nice to see this!

I got this in an email from my X, she works for the Army, so I will assume it is accurate. I attend this kind of thing all the time and make donations that well exceed what the bill would be while I am there, and I make a mental note of whom is hosting.. They get a better shot at my business always...
Anyway this is all sponsored stuff for Veterans Day, I'm sure there is more, so add to it if you know of something.

One more I'll add -- BassPro. Show them a Military ID and you get 10% off your purchase on the spot. Anytime, not just Veterans Day.

Here in Savannah--just about every business offers military discounts--they often ask before you pay "are you military?"


The S. Ga community truly supports the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines and Coast Guard.

I tried to go to Hooters at 1pm 1.5-2hour wait. then went to Applebees (the further out of town one) and people said they been sitting over an hour and are told at least another 30mins. So no free meal for me today. Last year Was back home in Florida away from any military base and got a free meal and was very pleased.



But I will Say around the Daytona Beach area (Home) from movie theaters to food joints to Mom and pop stores all support in some way.

Pro Trans In Deland Fl Gave me a Heck of a discount when my trans blew up just before I left for my first deployment. I will ALWAYS go back to them and ALWAYS tell people about them.

Smitty777- Thank you for the offer, It is greatly appreciated but it is not needed.
The thanks you gave me is more then I ever expected from anyone.







Note: I reread my last post after I posted and it kinda sounds like I was just looking for a hand out. This is not the case I do not just look for hand outs but i did try and partake in the free food. But due to living in a military town it was hard to because of the 80k+ military who live around here. I was not upset I just went to a restaurant that did not give a Veterans day discount.
