Veterans Day is this Thursday, Nov. 11, and several area businesses are showing gratitude by way of free meals and discounts.

Here is a list of businesses offering discounts and deals for veterans. This is by no means an exhaustive list and it is not meant to be. I recommend calling ahead to ask if a particular business location is offering a special. 

This list will be continuously updated online and you can also keep tabs on free offers on other websites, such as themilitarywallet.com.

Planned events:Celebrations in honor of Veterans Day

Most of the discounts and deals do require proof of service, and sometimes promotions extend to spouses, other family members and first responders, as well. As always, if you have any questions about the deals or discounts, please call the business directly. 

In this Tribune file photo, this is the meal that will be part of the Veterans Day available at Martin’s Super Markets for Veterans Day.
