    In 4 weeks we will be honoring Veterans Day.
    Many restaurants offer free meals on Vets Day!

    BUT

    1) Suppose you were at a restaurants and saw someone claiming to be a vet - but
    you know for a fact - that they are NOT a vet
    What would you do.

    2) Should a Vet take advantage of only one meal a day or is it acceptable to go
    to three different restaurants thur out the day - (B-L-S)


    3) Should those free meals be only for Vets - should current Active Duty personnel be included?

    4) Do you take advantage of at least one meal

    5) Other considerations?

    For 1), quietly tell the duty manager of your concerns. My local Red Robin has a Veterans Day Special. They ask for some form of ID. I use my VA card.
    2) Why not use all three?
    3)Again Red Robin's deals are for both Vets and Active Duty. I usually see the cadre from the local Marine Reserve Center.
    4) Yes.

    1.) Inform management that someone is taking advantage of the veteran free meal offer. Then without too much commotion, approach the subject and calmly remind them that stolen valor is a crime.
    2.) There is nothing wrong with going to three different places for a free meal throughout the day, after all, we eat three meals a day, right?
    3.) Veterans and active duty, most restaurants I know of do deals for both groups.
    4.) Most definitely.
    5.) None.

    My understanding is that stolen valor is only a crime- when there is a financial benefit - and in this case - it would be so
    That wasn't always the case when I was in the Army!!!

    The only reason I mention this is that Active duty have their day in May.
