Veterans appreciate being remembered on November 11th

ASHBURN, GA (WALB) - A lot of restaurants around the country are saying thank you to veterans with free or reduced-price meals today.

The Olive Garden has a special menu for Veterans to order from on this Veterans Day. Krispy Kreme, IHOP, Applebee's, Red Lobster, Chili's, and Longhorn's are a few others offering free appetizers or whole meals.

Veterans say its just nice to be remembered.

"It means a lot to be appreciated. A lot of people don't recognize veterans as being true heroes, but most veterans are true heroes," said Vietnam veteran Albert Shephard.

"I think it's good for people to recognize the vets for their service in the Army, and it's a blessing," said Willie Coley Sr., another Vietnam veteran.

A full list of the places you can go can be found here. One thing to note is that Golden Corral will have their annual Military Appreciation night on Monday from 5-9 PM.
