Free meal deals at 20 North Texas restaurants on Nov. 11 your veteran needs to know about

Fort Worth Star-Telegram - 11/6/2023

Many businesses will offer Veterans Day discounts for those who served, and for Air Force veteran Randy Geisel, that type of recognition matters.

The Arlington native, who served between 1969-1973, has had the occasional beer or two bought for him by complete strangers. Discounts for the holiday may not seem like much, but for veterans, it’s a way to show support, Geisel said.

“It’s nice to be recognized for that time,” he said. “I gave away four years of it.”

President Woodrow Wilson proclaimed Nov. 11, 1919, the first “Armistice Day” to honor World War I veterans, according to the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs.

The day was made a federal holiday in 1918, and after World War II and the Korean War several veteran organizations made pleas to strike the word “Armistice” from the name and call the Nov. 11 holiday simply, Veterans Day.

In 1954, President Dwight D. Eisenhower signed legislation to change “Armistice Day” to Veterans Day, and that is how the holiday has been celebrated ever since.

Many businesses all over the Dallas-Fort Worth area are showing their support for those who have served with free meals and drink. Here’s where veterans can find deals in North Texas on Nov. 11:
