Freebies for Veterans and Active Military Members

Veteran's Day

I am a proud wife of a War Vet.

My husband served proudly in Desert Storm/Desert Shield in the Army.  He has seen much of the world and has fought bravely during his service.  If anyone is deserving of freebies and perks, it is definitely our military members.

Thank you all for your service!
