My kids always are very proud around this time of year.  When the elementary school invites their grandpa to an assembly to honor the veterans of our community.  It makes me proud that they hold him in such high regard even though they are too young to know 100% why we do so.

On top of the praise from K-5th graders it's also great that veterans get treated well outside of the noisy gym assembly.  Luckily, we've got a list compiled for you.

Veterans Day is on Monday, so here's a rundown of all the restaurants, stores, and websites offering deals for veterans and active military personnel . . .

1. Restaurants. A ton of restaurants are offering free food, including Applebee's . . . Buffalo Wild Wings . . . CPK . . . Chili's . . . Cracker Barrel . . . Denny's . . . IHOP . . . Golden Corral . . . Red Lobster . . . and Red Robin.

2. Coffee and donuts. Starbucks is offering free coffee for veterans, active duty service members, and military spouses on Monday. And Dunkin' Donuts is offering veterans and active duty military a free donut on Monday.
