Leilani - Thanks for spreading the word on the services being offered to veterans.  It is such a small thing in light of the service they've provided for us all.  Applebee's, McCormick & Schmick and Golden Corral are all participating in our area too!

Thank you for your service, Debbie!!! :)

Good to hear, Susan...I would hope that there are more offerings to our veterans, but I haven't searched for them and decided to just re-blog this. These are all nationwide chains anyway, so they're better for a blog post since they apply to everyone, regardless of geographical location (in the US). :)

That would be great, Rebecca! :)
