Next Saturday, November 11, is Veterans Day in the United States. On that date, service rendered by citizens who were part of the North American military was recognized.
When it falls on a weekend, the day of rest is brought forward to Friday. However, on the 11th itself, some markets, eateries and tour operators will offer discounts and services to them.
Shoni’s brand restaurants will serve complimentary breakfast until 11:00 AM. Shawnee’s locations ask for a military service receipt from Americans who want a free breakfast.
