Thanking our nation's veterans

Every year, Veterans Day is a time to recognize and celebrate the service of the men and women who have sacrificed so much for our country. At Atlas Credit, we take great pride in celebrating Veterans Day and honoring the service members of our nation's military.

So today, we're going to take a look at some of the ways veterans and their families throughout the state of Texas can enjoy Veterans Day weekend this year in the best ways possible.

Whether you're in Houston, Longview, Tyler, Dallas, Austin, or anywhere else in Texas, you're guaranteed to find great deals for active and retired military service members on food. From free meals to huge discounts on specialty menu items, dining establishments love honoring the service of our nation's veterans.

Some restaurants with great deals include:

  • Applebee's
  • Buffalo Wild Wings
  • Cracker Barrel
  • Famous Dave's
  • On the Border
  • Ruby Tuesday

Products & Services

From haircuts to car washes, hotel stays, hardware stores wedding dresses and more, Veterans Day weekend is a great time of year for veterans to treat themselves to cheap or even free services from a wide range of companies.

Some businesses offering such discounted services to veterans include:

  • Great Clips

Tips for Veterans Day

Before you leave your home on Veterans Day with an itinerary in mind, be sure to keep these tips in mind:

  • Check the website of the restaurant or business you're heading to ahead of time, or call them to verify that their Veterans Day deals apply to 2018. You might come across specials from previous years that have not been taken down from their websites.
  • Make sure that the dates of the discounts and specials apply specifically to the day you plan on visiting them. Some are Veterans Day only, meaning Sunday, November 11th. Some may also include the nationally observed holiday on Monday, November 12th.
  • Some promotions may not be nationwide. That means you need to read the fine print to be totally certain that the location you're heading to is participating in the promotion.
  • Never leave without your Military ID!

And remember, veterans also qualify for specific programs year-round that other citizens may not. For instance, you can go back to school and acquire a degree at a lower cost than normal. Or if you are an entrepreneur, you can start a business and state proudly that it is run by veterans, which is sure to earn the respect of potential customers.

As a veteran of our nation's armed forces, you deserve to take advantage of this Veterans Day -- both to relax with friends and family and be treated with respect everywhere you go. Atlas Credit wants to take this opportunity to thank all our military service men and women, past and present!
