Veterans Day is more than just a federal holiday and a day off of work for some.  It's observed annually to honor our military veterans.  In my opinion enough isn't done to honor our veterans who served throughout the years.

Various restaurants will feature promotions and specials for veterans on November 11th.  Many of those places give out a free meal to those who served and will even extend the offer to current active military.

One place in particular is Dairy Queen.  They hold "Free Blizzard" events throughout the year, or offer discounted ones to the public and in turn make donations to a good cause.  For Veterans Day 2020, select Dairy Queen locations are offering a free Blizzard up to a size medium to show a little thanks.  The offer is open to all branches of the US Military so Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps, Coast Guard, National Guard and Reserves can all take part.

They are also going the extra mile and extending that courtesy to active duty military personnel.  You just need to show up to a participating location and be in uniform, or present valid proof of military service.  For this, you can use your Military ID, Veterans designation on your driver's license, or show your DD214 paperwork.  It's nice to see that restaurants are still putting forth the effort to give thanks even despite the COVID-19 pandemic when many businesses have been hit hard financially this year.
