Businesses are appreciative of all that the military does. That's why they offer discounts to military and their families throughout the month of November, which is designated as Military Family Appreciation Month.
The following is a list of discounts on goods, services and dining during Military Family Appreciation Month. Please check back as the list is updated.
Keep in mind that most businesses require proof of military service, which can include a VA Universal Access Card, Military I.D., DD-214 (Discharge Papers), Veterans Service Organization Card (VSO's include groups like the VFW, DAV, AmVets, MOAA, FRA, and the American Legion), or in some cases businesses will accept a picture of the veteran in uniform.
