We're just a few days away from Veteran's Day. While I think as a whole, we have done a much better job at recognizing both our Active Duty Military & our Veterans over the last decade, it's still important that we take a day each year to thank them for everything they have done for us & our country. Both my Father & Grandfather served in the military, and while that period of their lives happened well before my time, I am so grateful for them & so proud to say that they are my family, and my favorite Veterans.
If you have a Veteran in your life, or even if you just know of one, be sure to pass this list along to them! Many businesses want to show their gratitude on Veteran's Day, so why not hook them up with a free meal, discount or some other goodie?!
