Military members can also come in on Veterans Day for a free haircut or to pick up a free haircut card to use any day before the end of the year.

Military members have until Dec. 31, 2013, to redeem the paper or digital thank-you card with proof of service and get their free haircut.

Thank you! Hopefully my expired mil ID works

I got the list as an attachment to an email from a friend that is connected with http://www.theveteransvoice.com/

I guess this is an early release and they will be updating their website soon.

Per the link, the Knott's Military Tribute Days actually runs until Jan 5.
Nov 27 is simply the last day to get up to 6 additional tickets for $22 each.
From Nov 28 - Jan the up to 6 additional tickets are $27 each, but military still gets in free.

I'd pass on Olive Garden. The last year or so their "entree" special menu items have been like kid's meals. I got this last year with the spaghetti meal and you gone one piece of break, minuscule salad and a kid's meal entree. I complained to Manager and got a regular meal free the next week. They are cheapskates when it comes to Veteran's meals on our day IMHO. But, then again, it could have just been my local OG. Anyone else?

Oh, and Golden Corral had a line around the corner 2 hours before the "free" meal. I passed on that one...

Nice work. I could eat all day long. Thanx.

They have updated the site at http://themilitarywallet.com/veterans-day-free-meals-and-discoun...  to the 2013 offers. There are a few more and I will update this when I get off work.

They are still in the process of updating so some of these are last years offers and will be updated soon.

I just updated quite a few of them. I found some on their FB pages and some by Press Releases. I'm sure there will be more updates before Veteran's Day

TheMilitaryWallet.com updated their site again. Another half a dozen or so new restaurants and some deleted. I marked all the new ones and updated ones with **

They also updated some of the retail deals and free admissions.

Great list, I forwarded it on to my Marine son! So nice to see the businesses who still offer the respect due to our military men and ladies!

Just got a facebook post from FLIP Burger Boutique - TOP Chef winner Richard Blaise's burger joint in Atlanta, GA & Birmingham, AL.
Stop by anytime on Monday, Nov 11th and show your proof of service and you'll enjoy a complimentary burger of your choosing.

 

Hopefully, some of you or some Servicemembers/Veterans you know can take advantage of this. A little different from the stuff listed, I guess.

Once you are through with all of your free dining and such, maybe a show might be in order. Six months of free shows sound good? *I wish I could take advantage, but I am already a paying member.

Site: http://www.fillaseat.com/

Offer: Six free months of duet tickets membership. Registration required on 11 November 2013.

Many cities, yet not all, available.

Thanks GuitarMan and DeltaSigChi4. Added your deals to the OP.

Also added a deal by Puggle for Coco's Bakery Restaurant (free pie)

Please review the dates. McCormick's is the 10th, not the 11. Some dates say Monday, Nov 12, but Monday is the 11th. etc.

Applebees does have it on their web-site...

Also found some updates...Spaghetti Warehouse coupon and this years offer and coupon for Ruby's diner.

Nate go to the Fillaseat FB page for D.C. venues they are offering free for the first 200 using code TU4SERVICE6
https://www.facebook.com/Fillaseatdc?ref=br_tf

It appears each individual Fillaseat has different deals and the best place to find them is by looking them up on FB

Some are offering discounted memberships and others are offering free memberships.

Here are links to the Fillaseat FB pages
Some offer free membership some offer discounted membership and a couple have no deal mentioned.
The links that are not bold do not have a FB page and are links to the Fillaseat.com page for that city.

Sorry if this was already posted, but I didn't want to waste time searching.

Depending on your time zone, you should still be able to take advantage of Chick-Fil_A's promo - veteran's and spouse get free meals (sandwich of choice, side and drink).  Didn't know about the spouse part, but found out when they didn't let us pay for either meal.  It's 5 - 8 PM, and I strongly recommend calling to verify this info.
