Deals and Discounts for Veterans and Military on Military.com

Many organizations and businesses show appreciation for veterans, service
members and their families with offers on Veterans Day

McLean, Va - Military.com is showcasing Veterans Day Discounts again this year with one of the most comprehensive lists of over 100 restaurants, retailers, and travel and recreation organizations seeking to show their appreciation for service members, veterans, retirees and their families.

"This outpouring of goodwill reflects businesses' profound appreciation for our veterans," said Greg Smith, President of Military.com and retired Navy admiral. "In turn, our veterans and military personnel greatly appreciate that gesture of gratitude."

Veterans and military personnel should keep in mind that most businesses require proof of military service, which can include a Veterans Administration Universal Access Card, Military I.D., DD-214 (discharge papers), Veterans Service Organization Card (VSO's include groups like the Veterans of Foreign Wars, Disabled American Veterans, and the American Legion) or, in some cases, businesses will accept a picture of the veteran in uniform.
