Veterans Day 2013 discounts offered across nation for those who served

WASHINGTON (Army News Service) -- On Nov. 11, 2013, America will pay tribute to the men and women who served the nation. For Veterans Day, as a way to say thanks, many businesses across the nation will be giving discounts and running promotions for veterans.

Many establishments -- from retailers, restaurants, hotels, cell phone providers, automobile services, insurance agencies, recreational sites, movie theaters, sports and entertainment venues, travel services and others -- offer military discounts on Veterans Day and throughout the year.

The offers are subject to change or may not be offered at a particular location, so would-be takers should call ahead to confirm a discount is being offered. Most businesses also require proof of military service. A current military identification card or a DD Form 214 will usually suffice.

The following are deals as part of the Veterans Day 2013 recognition. Just because an establishment isn't listed, it doesn't mean it doesn't offer a great deal to the men and women who have served, so be sure to ask before making a purchase:
