Veterans' s Day is today and I honestly believe that there is nothing we can do to repay those who have served our great country. There is nothing we can do to repay their families however, that doesn't mean we shouldn't make an effort. Whether you look someone in the eye and thank them for their service or shake their hand, any kind gesture I'm sure is appreciated. Please take a moment every time you see someone in uniform and show your appreciation especially today. Here is a list compliments of ktvb of local businesses that are expressing their gratitude by offering freebies as well as discounts for all veterans and active military personnel.
