Veterans Day 2012 is the celebration of our country’s brave men and women who currently serve or served with no regard for their own lives. While thanking every single vet or currently serving member of the military personally would be impossible, nationwide restaurant chains are trying their best. From Applebee’s to Sizzler, chains across the country are offering free meals on Sunday and even some on Monday to military members who show their military identification.
According to the Army Times, the free food extends everywhere from a free doughnut at Krispy Kreme to a free steak dinner at Sizzler.
