Once again, Applebee's will thank our nation's veterans and active duty military by inviting them to the Fremont Applebee's, located at 39139 Farwell Drive, for a free meal on Veterans Day, Thursday, November 11. Last year, Applebee's served more than one million military men and women and expects that number to be even higher this year.
Gala Corporation, which owns and operates 18 Applebee's throughout California, will offer complimentary entrŽes to active and retired military service men and women all day if they show proof of military service, and will host a 24" x 36" framed "Wall of Thanks," where guests can sign their name and express their gratitude to our troops. During their time at Applebee's, guests will also have the chance to write a personal letter of thanks to deployed soldiers that will be mailed out by the company.
"It's an honor to serve our veterans and active duty military on this national day of respect and remembrance," said Stacy Griffis, spokeswoman for Gala Corporation.
Guests are encouraged to say thanks to veterans and active duty personnel on Applebee's "virtual wall of honor" as well at www.facebook.com/applebees or www.applebees.com.
Veterans and active duty military will need to provide proof of service, which includes U.S. Uniform Services Identification Card, U.S. Uniform Services Retired Identification Card, Current Leave and Earnings Statement, Veterans Organization Card, photograph in uniform or wearing uniform, DD214, Citation or Commendation.
Neighborhood Applebee's will be open 11 a.m.-midnight. Offer is valid for Dine-in only. Traditional sides are included with the free entrees; 2 for $20, appetizers, upgraded side items or extras, beverages, desserts and gratuity are not included.
