Take yer freebies and stick ‘em—merchants are just like politicians, as D.Crockett saw things...
If there is any good in ya, just try being a real American (not Aino) and let it go @ that!
Thanks for the heads-up. BF is a Vietnam-era vet so I’ll pass it along.
I’m not letting him eat at Hooters, however.
How do people prove they’re vets? Personally, I have a VA card.
I note that our favorite pro-Obama whipping boys at Olive Garden are not on the list
Also Denny’s, free grand slam breakfast!
You don’t think guys go to Hooters for the great wings?
I think this is more in the nature of a thank-you than a freebie, the same way a local cafe owner might offer the local beat cop a free coffee and sandwich.
I ask the same thing about Homeless Vets? How can you tell if you can not remember your service number. Which by the way should come to you as fast as your name!
Retiree card if retired. DD 214 if not a retiree.
VFW card has always worked for me.
A lot of them are restaurants but one merchant ad made me laugh. How many Marines go to Build a Bear?! I’m trying to get a mental picture here... and I can’t!!
DD214. In Texas you can have it put on your DL.
“Fashion Bug 20% off all plus-size and misses clothing purchases with a copy of military ID or spouses military ID.”, This one is kinda phunny.
Personally I am a VFW member and have a card... but every veteran should have a copy of their DD-214. Show that to any manager that is advertising veteran promotions and they will know you are a veteran.
HyVee in Iowa, Nebraska ?? free breakfast during normal breakfast hours.
Uh-huh . . .
Thanks for posting, although one minor point about Lowe’s.
Their 10% discount runs year round for all veterans and AD, not just the days mentioned.
Maybe they have changed this, but I think that both Lowe’s and Home Depot offer 10% off to veternas ALL THE TIME. Just bring in DD214 or active ID.
Let’s see/HyVee(Iowa and environs)(Breakfast)
Taxas Roadhouse(Dinner/Lunch) AND
Denny’s Grand Slam Breakfast(Dinner/Supper) AND...
BURP! THEN SLEEP!
Shortly before being released in 1968, I was assigned to the Company Office at Camp Pendleton.......I had the thrill of typing my very own DD-214.
I MEAN Texas Roadhouse!
Ignore the negative reviews -- it appears there was a SNAFU offering this for free last year, and the negative comments all refer to that (check the dates).
My local Lowe’s gives me the 10% discount every day. I still carry my 36 year old inactive reserve ID card. It’s still recognizably me, plus it has thumbprints if anybody got really fussy.
(P.S. The local Home Depot does NOT do this!)
Knotts Berry Farm, Anahiem, CA - Nov 1st through Thanksgiving. Show military ID or DD214, free admission for you and a guest plus up to 6 tickets at $16 each.
Don't know about the other services, but the USAF abandoned service numbers in about 1966 in favor of SSAN's.
get your head busted at an OWS rally and you’ll get your automatic veteran status with MSM seal of authenticity.
uh oh...that was a mistake to post the DD214...
...Obama will be scanning it, swapping out his name, plugging in Hawaii as his birthplace, adding one of his various SS numbers...and declaring he did a stint in the Army. :-)
(BTW...thank you for your service!)
I took my DD214 to Applebee’s, but they didn’t look at it, my squadron ball cap was sufficient for them. They were too swamped to check.
That's not my DD 214!
They go to Hooters for the great foresails and rudders
I seldom finish the month with more than a dollar or two left. If I can contribute ten dollars a month then anyone can. This forum is one of a few almost sane harbors in an insane world. Please help pay for our megaphone, put your money where your mouth is.
Thank you for the reinforcements. It’s very nice of you.
Ding Ding Ding! We have a winner. I did not want to give that secret away. But you are right. So, do homeless have SSN’s that they can remember?
