Memorial Day Weekend is almost here. It’s a time to honor our fallen service members and show appreciation to those still in uniform, as well as to veterans, on Memorial Day (Monday, May 30, 2022). While some restaurants may still have COVID-19 restrictions, many are fully open, and offer discounted or free meals for veterans on Memorial Day. In addition, plenty of retailers offer veterans discounts and military discounts, many of which also extend to first responders.
