Today is Veterans Day – the day we honor the men and women who have dedicated their lives to serving our country during its most difficult chapters. Today, there are over 20-million veterans living in the United States and this holiday is for them. We honor those veterans for their patriotism and their willingness to serve and sacrifice for the good of our country. 

Not surprisingly, we’re all pretty grateful and a number of freebies are available. There are many more across the country, but these are the deals you could take advantage of in or around POP Nation:

  • Olive Garden: Saying ‘thank you’ to all members of the armed services with free pasta and breadsticks. The chain will have a special Veterans Day menu today.
  • Dunkin’: Members of the military past and present can grab a free donut today. No purchase is required. 
  • Red Lobster: Veterans, reservists, and active-duty members of the military can get a free appetizer or dessert with proof of service. 
  • Pilot Flying J: Veterans get a free breakfast combo any time they choose from November 9-15.
  • Starbucks: Active service members and veterans can get a free cup of hot brewed coffee today. 
  • Great Clips: Veterans and active duty or pick up a free haircut card or get a free haircut today. Also, non-veterans who get a haircut today get a free haircut card to give to a veteran.
  • More deals: Look out for local businesses and smaller chains, who might also have discounts and freebies today.

The deals are just a small token of gratitude to the men and women who put their lives on the line to protect our nation. Thank you for your service and sacrifice.
