It’s always good to see so many businesses show love to veterans.

As a Navy vet, I can’t express how much I appreciate it every time someone tells me, “Thank you for your service.” Even though we veterans tend to forget the bad times after we get out, military service can be tough, even if you never see combat. So, thanks to everyone out there for showing your support.

As is always the case, several local businesses are showing their support to veterans with discounted deals and freebies. Proof of service in the form of a military ID or discharge papers is typically required.

The following businesses in Wichita Falls will be offering deals to veterans for Veteran’s Day, according to USA Today:
