Here is a list of freebies or discounts for Military/Veterans:
I will be at the Lacey Applebees Friday at 6pm having a free OC dinner with a fellow veteran.
God Bless America!
Also, veterans remember we can still salute the flag!
I was told yesterday that I wasn't a "real veteran" and do not qualify for any veteran assistance, by two different organizations no less. The back story is that I am unemployed and trying to make ends meet right now, so I contacted a veterans assistance program to see if I could get some help and they said that all the assistance they have is earmarked for "real veterans" that served in Iraq or Afghanistan and that I don't qualify. So sorry...
The interesting part is two different organizations used the exact same terminology, of being a "real veteran" which I found odd. Seems like there has been such a huge deal made out of helping the returning war veterans, that they have forgotten about the rest of us that were not over there, but acting in a support capacity or fighting something entirely different. I get focusing on the returning vets they went through a lot over there, but there are a lot of us that weren't over there that are hurting as well... Either way it sucks...

My family and myself will be visiting the Cathcart Applebees on that day.
Here is another site to check for companies participating in Veterans Day
I would like to offer my gratitude to all veterans who serve before, while and after I served our country.
- Being prepared is to prepare, this is our responsibility.
- I am not your Mommy or Daddy and do not sugar coat it but I will tell you simply as how I see it, it is up to you on how you will or will not use it.
- IANAL, all information I present is for your review, do your own homework.
Funny, couldnt get a ride from the airport either, class A, jump boots and beret. No takers for a hitch hiker, but a lot of "we support our troops" bumper stickers flying by.
I will be at the apple bees on 72nd st in tacoma if anyone wants to join me, for lunch, around noon.
Oh no doubt about it, and don't think I even want to come close to comparing the two.
In the few years following 9/11 you could have gotten a ride in a heart beat, and the guy/gal would have offered their daughters hand for marriage to boot.
Goes to show how quickly Americans forget that "support" should mean more than lip service.
