As it so often does, my American flag is waving in the breeze in front of my house. My house isn't the only one.
Participating Applebee's restaurants are offering free meals to veterans:
Applebee's Neighborhood Grill & Bar restaurants invite all active duty and veterans to one of 164 participating restaurants nationwide to pull up a chair for a delicious meal and heartfelt thanks this Veterans Day. With gratitude for their service and sacrifice, active duty and veterans will eat free at participating locations on Veterans Day (November 11, 2008) during regular business hours.
I'll probably go.
JROTC students from schools in my district will participate in a Veterans Day parade:
Cadets from Casa Roble and Del Campo high school Air Force JROTC programs will be participating in Folsom's 2008 Veterans Day Parade on Nov. 11. “We Must Never Forget” is the theme for the parade that begins at 9 a.m. in the Mervyn’s parking lot on East Bidwell Street. It follows East Bidwell, Coloma and Natoma streets to the Folsom Community Center. After the parade, a brief ceremony will be held at the Veteran’s Memorial behind the Folsom Public Library.
It's more than just a day off work.
