    Thank you for posting these, all who are interested should use them. They are free to Vet's in appreciation.
    But I have a different feeling on it. All I would really like for myself is a simple thank you and an endeavor to learn more about and participate in the country we (Veterans) all have given them..

    I just wish we had Krispy Kreme here. I work downtown so I will be able to watch the Veterans Day parade during my lunch break. It will be the first time I attended a Veterans Day Parade since I got our of the Marines 19 years ago. I don't know how I will react to it.

    Thanks Zev0 for posting that info. Those of us who belong to the VFW have received this info already, but I know that many vets are not members. I am a Vietnam vet and didn't join the VFW until 2008. I tried for many years to forget the horrors faced there. When we returned home for the most part we were not honored for our efforts over there. I think things are somewhat better for vets now. I won't comment on our political mess.

    A link to more free stuff for those who would like to use it:http://www.freemania.net/blog/free-stuff-for-veterans/

    And a bit off topic: If like me you would rather give again than receive free stuff, find a local memorial (that is for those who made it home also) and dress it up for Veteran's day.

    I appreciate the businesses providing freebies to vets and Zev0 and the others compiling the lists.

    Nope, quite easily the worst day of the year to go out and eat....each of the aforementioned businesses are packed with lines out to the parking lot on VDay.

    As I get older, I am more and more in favor of mandatory service in the military (not community service) for all of our citizens. In fact, I'd go as far as saying that a citizen would be required to earn his/her right to vote with honorable military service. Those who are not eligible for health reasons would be excused, the crippled, the blind, and those who have a boil on their but (famous talk show host who skipped out on Vietnam used the boil/butt expemption).

    A la Starship Troopers, eh?

    Funny, I hadn't guessed you were a philosophical fellow traveler with Heinlein. I would, however, not make that military service. Like Heinlein, I would require "service" to society for the franchise, but for those religiously or otherwise barred from military service, there are countless alternatives

    Vetrens day

    Good to know, although I am a vetran I will not be taking advantage of the offers. It is just good to know that our effort is appreciated by some.

    Not by all though as commie Jane is going to be celebrated at the white house as one top 100 US citizens.

    in the past, i've enjoyed Mc & S's Veterans Day tributary entre at the Haymarket location in Boston...marvelous!!

    thanks for the post, gonna grab me a Subway for lunch, later am going to The Sandbar & Grille here in Juneau for a tributary buffet...they're very popular locally for their battered halibut, this outta be a yummy day :cool:

    i too agree with mandatory service, but i don't think peeps should be forced into the military. induction into something like the Job Corps would, imo, work wonders for this country's morale.

    to all who served, to all who are serving...thank you!

    apparently, at the Subway in Juneau, freedom is worth 50% off (one 6") today.

    I tried the Applebees here and the line was around the building, so just went someplace else and paid. No biggee.

    the local buffet was slightly disappointing, seemed like a way to sell more beer on an otherwise slow thursday. however, it turned out to be a great social opportunity, 60+ local veterans getting together for potluck. i met & made new friends, ate a lot of chili, had a few drafts. and...speaking of shrimp...i was given a 5lb box of frozen local prawns big as your fist, whoo!!

    man, this is absolutely cool, too...just now as i'm posting, i got a service message from at&t...my application for a 15% discount is approved. dang, all these years i din't know.

    thanks again for the thread, Zev...you just saved me bunches of bucks :cool:
