Veteran’s Day- a review of places that Honors Those who Serve

It’s only fitting that a consumer review include a spot for those business who honor military.  I have compiled my own list and along with this article from I think there are plenty of businesses that do, in fact, honor military.
The article above discusses some of the deals on Veteran’s Day for Vets and their families:  For example, Vets receive a free meal at Applebee’s (no purchase necessary) on the 11th.  Golden Corral is giving Veterans and their families a free meal on November 15 (Monday), and Outback Steakhouse is offering a free bloomin’ onion and a beverage to the Vets.  Of course, there is much, much more.  You can read the article to find out great deals near you including a free car wash on Veteran’s Day.  That would be great in a locale where it does not snow on Veteran’s Day.
Over the years in Denver and Colorado Springs, I have also started keeping a list of places that give amazing Military discounts year-round.  The article above discusses Home Depot’s and Lowe’s.  They used to do 10% off to active military and their families on Veteran’s Day.  Well, that deal is now all the time.  Just present your ID and get your 10% off!
The Denver Museum of Nature & Science offers FREE admission to the regular museum portion to all those sporting an active military ID (this includes active reserves).  You get reduced rates to IMAX and special exhibits.  What a deal!  Children’s Museum in Denver offers reduced rates for military and their dependents and you can also apply a discount to a yearly family membership at the Museum.  Nice!  Botanic Gardens, and the Denver Zoo offer military discounts year-round as well on both memberships and daily admission. The Aquarium offers discounts as well but their discounts are not as hefty as the venues discussed above. At the wildlife experience in Parker, you get in free- your first visit through December 31, 2010 is free with your ID and your family too!  Wow!  That deal ends so go check out that museum.  It is a great museum.

Some eateries in Colorado Springs like Leon Gessi pizza, Schlotzky’s and Chipotle offer military in uniform or if you show your ID, discounts too!   10% off is the norm.  Three Margaritas in the Springs does 20% off!  Chipotle gives you your drink for free.  What a nice way of saying, “thanks for serving!”   This just in:  Rubio’s is offering a free taco (no purchase necessary) for Vets who bring in this coupon and their IDs.  Rubio’s is simply delish.  Also, Red Robin is offering a free appetizer with the purchase of an entree.  Not as a good as free with no strings but nonetheless, a great deal if you bring your family to Red Robin on Veteran’s Day.  Now that you have eaten your way through Veteran’s Day…. go watch a movie!
Movie theaters are great too – even some AMC theaters are NOW honoring military with a $1.00 off.  The best theaters for military discounts are United Artists, and Kerasotes.  Regal offers a great discount too to military as well.  Check your local theaters and wherever you go, always ask… it never hurts to ask!
If you know of a place that offers military discounts year-round please share in the comment section.  I want our readers to know where Veteran’s and their families are honored.  Happy Veteran’s Day and thanks to those who served, and continue to serve including the families that sacrifice as well!
