As a “Thank You” to veterans and active duty of the U.S. armed forces dozens of restaurants and businesses across the Valley of the Sun are offering discounts, free meals and special deals for Veteran’s Day.
Proof of service such as a military ID is typically required and a few businesses will allow dressing in uniform as a form of identification. Discharge papers, VA cards and veteran organization membership cards also can be used to prove service at most businesses.
