Veterans Day is a time for us to pay our respects to those who have served. This holiday started as a day to reflect upon the heroism of those who died in our country’s service, and was originally called Armistice Day. It fell on Nov. 11 because that is the anniversary of the signing of the Armistice that ended World War I. However, in 1954, the holiday was changed to “Veterans Day” in order to account for all veterans in all wars.
Veterans day is just around the corner and many of our area eateries are providing dining deals to salute our service men and women. For the eighth year in a row DaytonMostMetro.com is proud to present a round-up of these discounts and freebies. As always, if you know of deal we’ve missed, please add it in the comments below.
