Happy Veteran’s Day to all of the military families out there!  Like many of you, my own family has several in it that chose to serve our country, including my Grandpa shown below.  On this Veteran’s Day I’m more than happy to share a few of the deals and freebies that are out there for those who put their life on the line for all of us.  My friend, Katy, who has helped with a few posts before, has a husband who is in the military, and she helped put together a list of a few Veteran’s Day deals for those who are eligible!  Thank you so much to all of you who have served.
