I don't know if there is anything we can do, as a society, to truly repay our military men and women for all they have done in service of our country - that doesn't mean we should stop trying though. The best we can do is to show them our thanks and appreciation whenever and however we can. One gesture that I think everyone responds to is offering a free meal, and that's what our locally-owned McDonald's restaurants are doing this Veteran's Day.

Who, What, Where, When

  • Who: I guess the "who" in this case would be who is the free breakfast for - and the answer is any retired or active duty military service member who loves breakfast.
  • What: A free McDonald's breakfast combo of your choice.
  • Where: Participating McDonald's restaurant locations in Evansville, Newburgh, Mt. Vernon, Princeton, Boonville, Jasper, Henderson, Owensboro, and dozens more.
  • When: The free breakfasts are available on Veterans Day, Saturday, November 11, from 6am-10:30am.

What can you do if you're not a member of the military? Well, you can tell anyone you know who is in the military about this deal so they can get a free meal. You can also make sure those same military members know how much you appreciate them. I think that's a good start.
