Special deals for Veterans Day to thank those who served

It’s a day to honor military veterans. November 11 is Veterans Day. Originally, it was to celebrate the armistice of the first World War. Since then, it has evolved to include those who served in all wars. Many local and national businesses honor those who served and those still serving with special meal deals for Veterans Day. Below are local deals for the Ark-La-Tex. The VA offers a more comprehensive list of national discounts on their website.

There may be rules and restrictions. Check with each establishment for details. Valid Military ID required.
