Veterans Day Discounts & Freebies

Here at Post 1776 Veterans eat for free from Noon to 3pm. Guests $9.00.

Many other businesses offer our Veterans discounts or freebies such as meals on Veterans Day. If you visit these restaurants and businesses be sure to show your appreciation as they are doing for all of us. That includes tipping your server on the full price of the meal you receive.

Some of these offers start on the 10th of November but most take place on November 11th which is of course Veterans Day.

Remember at POST 1776 we will be serving a free meal to Veterans from noon to 3pm.
