Veterans Day is an important American holiday, a time for us to pay tribute to the men and women of the U.S. armed forces who have served nobly and risked their lives for our freedoms. While it’s great to talk to, thank, and even hug any veterans you known on Tuesday, November 11, I’m pretty sure they would also appreciate a greater gift…free stuff!
