Our Free Veterans Day Meals 2014 Guide lists the major restaurant chains offering free meals to active duty personnel and veterans on Veterans Day 2014. This year, Veterans Day falls on a Tuesday, so be sure to look at the specific date the offer is valid.
Take Note: Most offers will require proof of service such as your current military ID (active or retired), a copy of your DD214, a copy of your leave and earning statement, or even a photo of yourself in uniform. Be sure to read the fine print so you come prepared.
