In honor of Veterans Day, many national brands are offering their thanks to service members in the form of FREE food and drinks! The following list includes only the national brands with a presence on the First Coast. With Veterans Day falling on Sunday this year, but observed on Monday, some establishments are offering deals on just Sunday, some on just Monday, and some on both days.
