    I think it is wonderful that these restaurants will do something like this. But the problem I found is – my husband is a vet and he has to work. The time that he could get his meal for free is during the time that he is at work. Or – in our area – we do not have these restaurants. Just a bummer. I would love for him to have a special time on this day for what he did for our country in the military.
