Recommendations on Veterans Day
**MB recommends calling ahead to verify discounts and freebies for Veterans Day 2018. Some offers are on Veterans Day, November 11, while others are when it is observed on November 12. Other offers are several day celebrations or for the month of November. MB has done our best to verify all offers but some are specific to participating locations due to franchises. It is always best to call ahead first to verify your particular location to make sure they are participating. We also strongly recommend calling restaurants ahead to see if you are able to make a reservation as those that take them book up very quickly.
Remember to bring proof of service as most will require this however some may go on the honor system. Proof of service can include: a Military ID Card (active/reserve/retired), DD214, discharge paperwork, Current Leave and Earnings Statement (LES), Drivers License with Veterans Designation, Veterans Organization Card (e.g., American Legion and VFW), or other form of identification. You can also now receive your Veterans ID Card showing proof of service from the Department of Veterans Affairs.
