Veterans Dayis tomorrow in honor of the men and women who have donned the uniform defending the United States of America. Part of this great country is a bevy of nationwide restaurants. Many of those restaurants appreciate the sacrifice and generosity given by those who serve. To help thank the troops, they have great deals for all veterans and active duty members. With the help of KTLA.com, here’s a quick list of just some of the deals you can get tomorrow if you are a veteran.
Kick start your day with a free coffee from Starbucks. Starbucks gets a lot of grief for its liberal leanings, but a free coffee is a fantastic way to jump start your day.
Starbucks On Veterans Day, active duty service members, reservists, veterans and military spouses are invited to enjoy a free tall brewed coffee. Additionally, through November 11, for every Veterans Day Starbucks Card or eGift purchased, Starbucks will contribute $5 to help support programs assisting service members, military spouses and veterans.
If you enjoy a nice donut or dislike Starbucks coffee, head on over to Krispy Kremes or Dunkin' Donuts.

Red Robin: All veterans and active duty military members a free Red’s Tavern Double burger with Bottomless Steak Fries for Veteran’s Day.
While these deals can never show the appreciation truly deserved for our nation’s heroes, it is one way that America’s businesses help give back. Surely, there are local small business deals out there as well.
If you are not a member of the military but are out to eat and see a veteran, consider paying it forward by assisting with the bill. Or, simply say thank you for their service. Indeed to all Veterans, thank you for your sacrifice and willingness to defend America from its enemies.
