Free food for vets on Veterans Day at NJ/PA restaurants
It’s traditional in New Jersey to pay homage to our military service people by giving them free (or discounted) eats or drinks on their special commemorative day.
In honor of Veterans Day, Pennsylvania and New Jersey eateries are offering deals for active and retired military members. Here’s a sampling of some great deals being offered on Veterans Day, Sunday, Nov. 11 or (Veterans Day Observed, Monday, Nov. 12).
Take the time to go the website of each Restaurant because each has different requirements for proof of ID and restrictions.
There are probably hundreds more than I list here — you just have to Google it to find the deals near you.
