Looking Back at Veterans Day

I have to take this opportunity to thank all of the companies out there that did a fabulous job of honoring our veterans yesterday (and throughout this month in some cases).

Last night was crazy busy for us. As soon as *E* got off of the bus we headed to the dentist for the boys 6 month-checkups, then it was off to dinner across town and finally to friend's house for our weekly 'get together'. I mention dinner because we could have *easily* done a slow-cooker meal and popped home between the dentist and small-group. BUT I knew a number of restaurants in our area that were honoring our Veterans and I wanted them to know I appreciated it!

So we headed to Outback Steakhouse. It was a draw between Applebees and Outback for us but I just can't pass up a free Bloomin' Onion :). We sat down, got our drinks ordered, and then we mentioned Hubs is in the Army, so that we could partake in their Veterans Day special. Our waiter perked up and said he is also a veteran. He was stationed in San Diego with the Navy for quite some time. It felt good to look at him and say 'Thank you for your service'. We sat (well the waiter stood) there for about 5 minutes talking about all the family we have in the military. Some on boats, some in the sand, others enjoying retirement, and some just starting the thrilling world of military-service. What a rich heritage we come from.

Did you see our 101 Ways to Thank a Veteran? It was a hit on Facebook and Twitter. It was featured on Army.mil and amongst blogs (professional and personal). I know Veterans Day specials are coming to a close but don't forget we have thousands of businesses at MilitaryAvenue.com that are thankful for our military 365-days a year. You can find military-discounts around you: http://www.militaryavenue.com/RewardFinder.aspx

BTW last night at Outback Steakhouse someone picked up the bill for our family of four! Gratitude, I am filled with gratitude!
