Veteran's Day Meals and Deals

Veteran's Day is tomorrow but we tend to celebrate it the whole weekend. There are over 20 million veterans living in the United States. Tomorrow, we will honor all of those men and women for their patriotism, and their willingness to serve and sacrifice for the common good of our country. I just want to take the time out to thank all of our military past and present who put their lives on the line and sacrifice so much so that my family can be safe at home. I talk to so many families, wives, and mothers who have someone in the military and I see what they have to go through. I know it's not easy so thank you. To honor and give thanks to our awesome military, there will be TONS of discounts and freebies for all of you!
