“The willingness of America’s veterans to sacrifice for our country has earned them our lasting gratitude,” Florida politician Jeff Miller once put it. This certainly is true, as if it not for the numerous brave men and women in uniform who had fought, we, as a nation, would not be where we are today.
Caring for American veterans long after they have left the battlefield is our duty as American citizens—and each year, there is a special day right around the holidays that always celebrates the courage and strength of these amazing individuals. Each year, retail stores, restaurants, and a host of other businesses band proudly together on Veterans Day to give back to those who have sacrificed so much of their lives to this country by offering some huge discounts. We’ve rounded up the top sales and deals that shoppers can find across the nation, including a special few reserved exclusively those who have served and done their military duty.
