Special Deals for Veterans This Week

I am very big on supporting our troops since my brother has been an active duty soldier for almost 20 years now.  He has served tours in Bosnia, Korea and Iraq and recently  has been promoted to Drill Sargeant and will soon endeavor on a new adventure in Germany. I am very proud of my brother and he has come a long way, overcoming adversity regardless of the matters set forth before him. If you guys would like to get to know his story better, you can purchase the PBS Frontline documentary “The Wounded Platoon“. My brother is one of the few members of his platoon that has survived the Iraq war, and the documentary clearly shows the issues soldiers are faced with in combat zones and afterwards when they return home.

In honor of our soldiers and Veteran’s Day this week, many business are providing special promotions for active duty, veterans and their families this Veteran’s Day. Here is a list of promotions available at the moment.
