It gives us the warm fuzzies to see how businesses, restaurants, and retailers are rallying this year to honor veterans and military service members by giving them discounts, free meals, and special treatment this Veterans Day. The number of discounts and freebies that are being offered has doubled this year, and we've heard that almost 50,000 restaurant locations are offering some sort of military deal.
This week, six brands have announced new military offers for Veterans Day using SheerID's military verification platform to keep their offers exclusive.
