DETROIT (WWJ) – November 11 marks the day when Americans everywhere honor and pay tribute to those military members who have served and are currently serving our country.

As a small token of their appreciation, several local businesses are offering free meals, discounts on merchandise and complimentary admissions for service members on Veterans Day.
