I didn't see this posted anywhere else and thought it might be of interest to at least a few people. Applebees is offering a free meal to Veterans on Veterans Day (from a limited menu). Here is the link for more information: http://www.applebees.com/vetsday/ I find it interesting that they'll take a picture as proof but not a DD214? I'm guessing they just don't want anything with the SSN on it. Guess I have to dig out a picture of me in my DCU's in Saudi back in 91! Edited to add that they have now added the DD214 as an acceptable proof - didn't have it on there when I first checked it last week!
