    would know or care

    It's only for 'participating restraunts'. Ones in high military areas like
    Norfolk, 'aint participating'. A lot will go though thinking, 'free main'
    then find out the site isnt part of it, then go , well, we are already here,
    might as well eat.....

    There are lots of 'offers' like that which actually scam military in the
    end.

    Isn't that the point? Veteran's Day in the US; Remembrance Day in Canada.
    Whatever...

    Please don't forget the McCormick and Schmicks chain of
    restaurants which for many years have offered free entrees
    to Veterans on Veterans Day. Not nearly as big as Applebys
    but as large a concern and heart:

    Nothing about "participating" here:

    http://www.applebees.com/vetsDay/default.aspx

    For those who are nervous (and I would be, since cshenk is a reliable
    source), there is a locator button on that page. At least for the US,
    put in your zip code, and you can get a phone number and hours, so you
    can call and verify. There's a button for international, and you can
    find the Canadian locations.

    I don't consider it meaning anything... A sales opportunity is all it is.

    I have a DD214 that shows an honorable discharge, and dates of
    service... I still would not bother to go to a chain restaurant for a
    "free" entree or appetizer. It's just another excuse for them to sale a
    table of options to where they make money on a singular offer. I can
    also see similar options through-out the year for similar situations...
    Irish and in need of a beer in March? "Have we got a deal for you!". A
    free 12Oz beer, for every brisket and tater dinner we sale...

    A freeloader corporate offer is just that.

    Another opportunity to make more money.

    You think the details matter to the corporate? Think again. Come
    February, it will be a free appetizer for "lovers". After all, they
    deserve a free pass some how.

    Don't fool yourself. We don't matter to companies that are large enough
    to have fangs into international concerns.

    We the little people are the golden road upon which they, "the
    entitled", build their fortunes upon.

    Fought in a war? Had a baby? Are you Irish? Been in love in February? Etc.

    Good intentions? Guess what your road is paved with, and whom it benefits.

    Got a Birthday soon? Free dessert for you, and every one at your table!!

    Still... haven't veterans given enough for their country? Why should
    they have to eat the crap at Applebee's?
    Given a choice of free "food" at Applebee;'s or paying for a decent
    meal... I'll pay for a decent meal.
