There are plenty of local freebies and discounts to honor our Veterans on Veterans Day this year.

Veterans Day is Monday, November 11th. In my opinion, it's one of the most patriotic days of the year. Each year, I proudly post my father's Army picture on my Facebook and Instagram, thanking him for his service to our country. If you see a Veteran, thank him or her. They'll appreciate it, trust me.

Many local restaurants and businesses also want to thank them by offering all kinds of freebies and discounts on food, drinks, and more.

Here are a few in our area from Veterans Advantage.
