Veteran's Day is this Friday!  I know we'll all be celebrating, and there's a really great way to say thanks.

So basically I've gone around The Internet to find all the goodies out there for the Veterans this Friday.  Now, this is just chain stuff and things that are posted online.  I found most of these at The Military Wallet.  But you know you don't wanna go through all that stuff, you just want the list right here!  So, here goes.  We'll start with the free or discounted food out there.  Keep in mind, again, these are national chain deals, but I'm sure a lot of local places are also offering specials.  In fact, you might check the comments on this post to see some more local deals.

And of course it probably should go without saying, but if you're counting on a deal or a discount, you might call ahead before you go just to make sure the Sedalia location is participating.  And, make sure you bring your ID or proof of service, they'll need that.
