Veteran's Day

From everyone at Savvy Coupon Clippers, we wanted to thank all the military men and woman who serve us so selflessly every day.  Remember this Veteran's Day, November 11, 2010 to thank your veterans.  Last year, me and my children decided to thank each one of the veterans in our neighborhood and family.  We made baskets with Muffins and Biscuits, Honey Butter, and some fresh fruit adorned with Red, White and Blue Fabric, Ribbon and a small American flag.  It certainly wasn't anything extravagant but it was heartfelt.  With the smiles on the faces of the gentlemen who received them and the thought that my children, hopefully, will one day understand the sacrifice that these men and women have made, feels me with so much adoration, warmth in my heart and I am so thankful that I can call America my home.

I have compiled a list of places offering free items for our military on Veterans Day.  If you know of anything else, please either comment below the post or email me and I will update the list.

1. Abuelo's Mexican Food Restaurant

The Veterans Day deals from Abuelo's vary by region, so check with your local restaurant before heading out. One example is a buy-one-get-one-free entree deal for all veterans and active military. Don't forget to bring your military I.D.
