Free Food And Deals For Capital Region Veterans on Veterans Day
In 1954, United States Congress and President Dwight D. Eisenhower established Veterans Day as November 11. That day was previously known as Armistice Day - commemorating the end of World War I.
From Arlington National Cemetery to main streets across America, we gather together on November 11 to honor the brave men and women who put their lives on the line for our country. Not only are there parades and ceremonies here in New York to show our gratitude, but some businesses and restaurants offer food and deals as an extra way of saying thank you.
