First off I just wanted to say "Thanks" to all the active duty service men and women as well as all the Veterans! I just got this in my inbox. Enjoy and God bless America...

Also, thanks to Applebee's for their support.

Select Applebee's Neighborhood Grill & Bar restaurants (164 participating restaurants nationwide) are testing a promotion that invites all active duty and veterans to pull up a chair for a delicious meal and heartfelt thanks this Veterans Day. With gratitude for their service and sacrifice, active duty and veterans will eat free at participating locations on Veterans Day (November 11, 2008) during regular business hours.

Veterans and active duty with proof of United States military service will be able to go to one of the participating Applebee's and select one complimentary entrée from a selection of delicious favorites: a savory House Sirloin, hearty Riblet Basket, zesty Fiesta Lime Chicken®, a juicy Quesadilla Burger or fresh Oriental Chicken Salad. All the traditional sides are included.

"It's an honor to host an event that helps the neighborhood come together and say thanks to our veterans and active servicemen and women," said Mike Archer, President, Applebee's Services, Inc..

Proof of military service includes:
• U.S. Uniform Services Identification Card
• U.S. Uniform Services Retired Identification Card
• DD214
• LES
• Citation or Commendation
• Photograph in uniform
• Veterans Organization Card

Not a SINGLE location Texas - home to seven air force bases, seven army bases, a coast guard base, and three naval bases?!? Not to mention, it's one of the largest and most heavily populated states in the country! They knew they've be losing money if they ran the promotion here... It sounds like they're more interested in the publicity than actually serving servicemen and women.

Green for the OP, light green for the deal since there's only 1 Cali location. Is an hour drive from work (1:35 from home) really worth it? ........ nah.

Happy Veteran's Day!

Also, for my fellow veterans, it is now legal to salute during the National Anthem when not in uniform.

nothing in Virginia?
never mind.
it's just not broken out by state.
Virginia is listed there under Tennessee.

This vet thanks you for your post. I didn't know Applebees was doing this promo.

Just passing through that day? If you live in Nashville shouldn't you know the surrounding cities?

Tennesee:
1396 Armory Drive, Franklin (definately the closest to Nashville)
101 S. Carter St., Ashland (if this is ashland city-possibly)

Amen and bumperooo...

I agree i was going to send this to my son who is at Ft Hood and nothing....but there is a Golden Corral in Killeen Tx i was wondering how long the lines would be there since its not far from Ft Hood...I agree on the PR idea

Wow, sorry to hear that there isn't a participating one in Texas especially since there are so many bases there. I am not in the service nor have I ever served but I do work at a VA Medical Center and the New York list was pretty extensive from the email I got

I say just go to your local Applebees and order your meal and then when it comes time to pay tell them you heard vets eat free and show them your proof and there you are. If need be ask to talk to the manager/owner...free food for our vets!

One in California...ridiculous. But, of course, California is so far left they're off the table (pun intended), and their stance towards the military in general is very negative; so no big surprise. A shame.

16 locations in Florida but none are participating! Shame on you Applebee's.

Why I am not suprised there is only one location in Cali offering the promotion.

At first blush, what you propose is doable and likely to succeed...HOWEVER, we did not serve so that we could beg. We come from every corner of this great country. Listen-up, MadMen, if you are a national chain. & want to market a program to get our good will, Serve us all or, suffer that you are the fool!

I don't even like this restaurant, their food is sub par with dennys. I also find it a disgrace that there is only 1 participating location in the middle of nowhere. On the other hand, Chilli's has compted a group of us that came in uniform after work on a regular day of the week. Have fun trying to put down this food!

lol its great that they are offering us free meals. I'm not going to complain that they aren't offering it at all locations. they dont HAVE to do this promotions. Beggars can't be choosers.

But imagine the kaos if they did offer that up around a base?

Their stance towards the decisions made by military officers with influence are negative, not the military itself. Are you saying Californians are not proud and supportive of their armed forces? Shame on you for generalizing.


Thanks for the post OP. I'll pass it on to my friend.

Lot of Applebees slamming about limited locations, but if you read the fine print, you might understand why this makes sense:

Select Applebee's Neighborhood Grill & Bar restaurants (164 participating restaurants nationwide) are testing a promotion that invites all active duty and veterans to pull up a chair for a delicious meal and heartfelt thanks this Veterans Day. With gratitude for their service and sacrifice, active duty and veterans will eat free at participating locations on Veterans Day (November 11, 2008) during regular business hours.

"It's an honor to host an event that helps the neighborhood come together and say thanks to our veterans and active servicemen and women. We are starting on a small scale to ensure we can best understand how to staff and service these important guests." said Mike Archer, President, Applebee's Services, Inc..

I think I'll go to TGI Friday's b/c they have a BOGO free.

Went to Newport News, VA location. . Had to wait 30 minutes. Got a $11.99 meal for free and it was good.
