We Appreciate Our Military! Veteran’s Day Freebies and Discounts
On Sunday — Nov. 11 — America will honor its military veterans, past and present. The tradition started in 1919.
President Woodrow Wilson proclaimed Nov. 11 a day of “solemn pride in the heroism of those who died in the country’s service and with gratitude for the victory” in World War I.
Locally this week, more than 60 Howard County businesses – from restaurants, auto dealers and photography studios to jewelers and hairstylists – will offer discounts for veterans. Last year, 70 businesses participated.
