Something that has become a tradition in the three years we have written this blog is to advertise the Veterans’ Day deals that you can get every year. Here is this year’s list. Some discounts or freebies are only on Veterans’ Day and some are for the whole weekend. Hope you have a chance to use these for you and your family.
