LENEXA, Kan. (AP) - A Kansas-based restaurant chain says it
plans to give away more than a million free meals to military
veterans and active-duty members on Thursday.
Applebee's says this will be the second year the meals are being
offered at all of its nearly 1,900 restaurants across the U.S. on
Veterans Day. More than 1 million current and former service
members took the casual dining chain up on its offer last year, and
the company expects even more to do so this year.
The company first offered free meals to veterans in select
markets in 2008, then went nationwide with the offer last year.
Free meals will be offered from 11 a.m. to midnight for veterans
and active-duty personnel who present proof of military service.
