Just a reminder – Memorial Day is a day to remember those who have died in service to our country. While it’s obviously very worthwhile to thank all who have served, this day is not the same as Veterans Day which is in November.
That being said, there are plenty of freebies and deals available to active duty military as well as veterans, and even some for regular old folks.
Please leave a comment if you know of any others and we’ll add them to the list.
