Veterans across this nation and across the world, America thanks you for your service and your sacrifice in the name of freedom. God bless you all.

On this Veterans Day, we salute and honor you, and we pray that your deployed comrades in arms return home safely and that those who made the ultimate sacrifice won’t be forgotten.

Restaurants across the country are offering free meals to veterans and to active members of the military today. Many stores are offering discounts to members of the military, active as well as veterans. For a few of the lists of those restaurants and businesses participating in honoring our heroes, visit here, here, and here.

Here are a few tweets of those businesses that are saying “thank you” to our vets with gifts of appreciation:

Additionally, Veterans Day parades and special events are planned across America today, while others happened this weekend. Check your local newspaper or news website for locations and times.

Also, loving God, my family, and my country. Be wise, be frugal. God bless America!
