Veteran's Day FREE Meals, Deals & To Do's

On Tuesday, November 11th the nation will gather together for parades, dinners, and other celebrations to honor our Veterans.  Last year, I wrote a blog post about Veterans Day and my visit to the White House as a kid.  My how things have changed since then.  If you can't make any of the events in your community, be sure to thank at least one Veteran that day.  And remember, all Veterans aren't currently wearing uniforms.  Here's a moving video from  Get your tissue ready.

Below is a list of events and opportunities happening for both the Veterans and our children.  Spread the word!
