Our vets have sacrificed a lot for us and dozens of things Vets Get Free For Veteran's Day. Here is a list and a thanks.
Veteran’s Day is a holiday put aside for all of us to remember the soldiers who have given everything for our country. It is primarily celebrated, to some extent, in the Allied countries that participated in World War One. In the United States, while the official day is November 11th, it is usually recognized on the Monday closest to that date.
