BOSTON (CBS) — November 11 is Veterans Day, a time for America to thank all those who have served our country. Many restaurants on Wednesday are showing their appreciation with special discounts or free meals for veterans and active military personnel.
Here’s a look at some of the offers at Boston-area eateries. Remember that some places may ask for proof of service, such as a military ID.
