Written by

After three days of Googling, calling companies and emailing we were still able to find a few more special offers for Veterans Day. In total over 41,000 locations across the United States, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand are honoring veterans with more than 125 opportunities. Today, in Part 4, More Free Veterans Day Opportunities, the final in the Veterans Day Benefits Series, free meals dominate the list. However, you will also see a hotel, museum and drugstore.

As a reminder, Part 1: Over 75 Free Offers for Veterans Day discussed activities and events:

Part 2, 14,000 Establishments Offering Meals, Desserts and Beverages this Veterans Day  focused on food.

Part 3, Free and Discounted Veterans Day Opportunities, highlighted discounts and free offers that are not events, activities or meals.

Each of the offers below are open to Veterans, Active Duty and Retired military. All of the information was either taken from company web pages or from personal discussions with the organizations. However, there may still be some inaccuracies. Every entry has a web link and/or a phone number. Before you head out the door, verify nothing changed.

One last reminder. Don’t forget to thank the organizations that are honoring Veterans. They need to know we appreciate their support.
