Veterans Day is a very special day for all of us, but it is especially important for veterans and their families. While we should honor, respect, and thank all veterans and active servicemen and women year-round, November 11 is when the federal holiday is recognized. Many businesses and companies locally and nationwide offer discounted or free goods and services for veterans, active servicemen and women, spouses, families and even friends. Below are a few great options for Cleveland veterans and their families to check out. And if you aren’t an active serviceman, woman, or veteran, please be sure to thank those around you for all that they do and have done.
