Today is Veteran’s Day, which means almost every food establishment has some kind of deal, gift, or special for Veterans, active-duty military members, military spouses, and sometimes even deals for friends of veterans! This means if you yourself are a veteran or military personnel you definitely shouldn’t pay for a single meal today. In fact, you should go all out and take full advantage of every possible deal you can manage to fit in today, you deserve it.
If you’re a military friend, buy your pal a drink and give them a thank you. You might not agree with the US military-industrial complex and how it has shaped geopolitics, but we’re talking about the troops — people literally putting themselves in harm’s way for you. Heavy!
A quick reminder: Almost all of the deals on this list require proof of military service by way of flashing your military ID, so if we don’t explicitly mention it in the deal just assume you’re going to need it today.
Here are all the best Veteran’s Day food deals of 2019, get out there and get fed!
