Another year has come and it’s time to honor veterans.

The annual celebration recognizing those who have served in the armed forces comes with a plethora of freebies to those looking to mark the Nov. 11 holiday.

Below is a non-exhaustive list of the discounts and offerings from various restaurants and businesses for those who served the U.S. in uniform. See one that’s not on the list? Feel free to send us an email and we’ll verify it and add it to the list.

Applebee’s will continue its tradition of offering a free meal for veterans on Nov. 11. Visitors who stop by one of the area’s restaurants in communities such as Livonia, Westland, Canton Township and Novi can select an entree from a curated menu. Eligible entrees include a top sirloin, bacon cheeseburger and three-cheese chicken penne, among others. The promotion is valid for dine-in only, though those who redeem the meal will also receive a $5 gift card to use at their next visit.
