Veteran's Day is quickly approaching! Now, everyone knows that a vast majority of restaurants offer discounted or free meals to active duty and retired Vets, but no one really talks about the parks, activities, and other discounts going on this Sunday. Being in a town heavily populated by military families, and being a military spouse myself, I thought some would benefit from this list! From all of us at My 99.9, thank you for your service in defending our country, and we honor the fallen who have protected us for years and years.
(If you are interested in a food/restaurant list, check out the article I found here.)
