It was wonderful, as I visited Applebee’s today, November 11, 2012. I shook the hands of so many and thanked them for their service. The smile I received, along with their handshake, was so beautiful. If fact, one veteran had his service dog with him. We discussed our service dogs and what they can do and honoring them for what they can do for us. Tribute to Veterans, past and present, thank you Applebee’s.

Thank you for your service. What a beautiful world we live in because of your service and your sacrifice!
Who says that there’s no such thing as a free lunch—or even a free dinner? Today, Applebee’s Neighborhood Grill and Bar Restaurants around the country are offering a free meal for veterans and military active-duty personnel.
With the 3rd years of this kind of promotion and with that in mind, restaurants are in “all-hands-on-deck” mode. The restaurants have been completely decorated in patriotic themes, and all staff will be wearing read, white and blue.
To qualify for the free meal, customers must bring military identification, such as a Uniform Services Identification Card, Uniform Services Retired Identification Card, current leave and earnings statement, veterans’ organization card, a photograph in uniform, a DD214 form, a commendation. Or, just wear their uniforms.
