Restaurants, stores, and businesses across the county offer special discounts for veterans and active-duty military members on Veterans Day coming up November 11.

The federal holiday in the United States is about honoring and showing appreciation for those who have served and continue to serve the country.

Here are two popular places in Lancaster County dishing up special deals for our veterans:

Golden Corral

Golden Corral is honoring the military by offering a Military Appreciation Night on Monday, Nov. 14 from 5 pm. Any person who has served in the United States Military (retirees, veterans, active-duty, National Guard, or Reserves) is eligible to receive a free meal.

The Military Appreciation Night is a long-standing tradition at Golden Corral, and Golden Corral restaurants have served 6 million free thank you meals to veterans and military members over the past two decades. Golden Corral restaurants and their guests have also donated over 17 million dollars to the Disabled American Veterans organization in the past two decades.
