Veterans Day freebies
Now that I am retired, I notice that you can get free grub on Veterans Day if you have a DD 214 (or the reservist equivalent). Everyone seems to be in on the act, including Krispy Kreme (doughnut and coffee) and Hooters (a meal with a purchase of a drink).
I will probably go to Bob Evans instead of Hooters, as I like to be married. Besides the food is better.
Sheetz, Tim Horton, Starbucks, and a whole mess of others are on the list, which happens to be here.
I have never done this before. I already feel guilty. I wasn't really much of a soldier. But my wife wants to go so we shall go. I don't mind getting the Krispy Kreme doughnut and coffee. But Bob Evans is a different matter. It's an actual meal and not a promo. I'll probably just tip the waitress heavier to cover the price of the meal. They work hard.
Anyway, I know many readers are veterans. Go. Enjoy. If you feel guilty, put the money in the tip. Help the people who have to work on Veterans Day.
