No, Golden Coral is not the only one doing it?
Here is a list of other restaurants doing the same
thing >>>> http://themilitarywallet.com/veterans-day-free-meals-and-discounts/
I don't necessarily prefer Golden Coral. They just happened to be the first to come to my attention.
A veteran is someone who, at one point in his life,
wrote a blank check made payable to 'The United States of America' for an amount of ‘UP TO AND INCLUDING MY LIFE.'
That is Honorable, and there are way too many people in this country who no longer understand it.
No matter what your outlook is on the military, pray for these folks who have decided to servers our country.

God Bless all our veterans, especially those who paid the ultimate price. Great to hear some restaurants honoring those heroes. Golden Corral is actually our favorite. Great food, place is always clean.
Add Bob Evans to the list.
Waterway Car Wash is in St. Louis, Kansas City, Denver and Cleveland. I don't know for sure about anywhere but St. Louis (though I suspect it is company-wide), but here they are giving veterans free full-service car washes on Veterans' Day, plus every Wednesday in November. No proof necessary, just tell them you are a veteran.
My mouth is watering already.
Oops, not for the car wash, but for dinner.
Mike, I don't know whether Waterway does mouths....
I suspect many here, like myself, are veterans. Thanks to those who served and those who appreciate and supported those of us who served.
It is the Soldier, not the minister
Who has given us freedom of religion.
It is the Soldier, not the reporter
Who has given us freedom of the press.
It is the Soldier, not the poet
Who has given us freedom of speech.
It is the Soldier, not the campus organizer
Who has given us freedom to protest.
It is the Soldier, not the lawyer
Who has given us the right to a fair trial.
It is the Soldier, not the politician
Who has given us the right to vote.
It is the Soldier who salutes the flag,
Who serves beneath the flag,
And whose coffin is draped by the flag,
Who allows the protester to burn the flag."
Re the last line. Not this vet.
Thanks Eugene for the list
Ditto not this vet.
Want to bet this man is the only veteran in the block?
He was getting old and paunchy
And his hair was falling fast,
And he sat around the Legion,
Telling stories of the past.
Of a war that he once fought in
And the deeds that he had done,
In his exploits with his buddies;
They were heroes, every one.
And 'tho sometimes to his neighbors
His tales became a joke,
All his buddies listened quietly
For they knew where of he spoke.
But we'll hear his tales no longer,
For ol' Joe has passed away,
And the world's a little poorer
For a Veteran died today.
He won't be mourned by many,
Just his children and his wife.
For he lived an ordinary,
Very quiet sort of life.
He held a job and raised a family,
Going quietly on his way;
And the world won't note his passing,
'Tho a Veteran died today.
When politicians leave this earth,
Their bodies lie in state,
While thousands note their passing,
And proclaim that they were great.
Papers tell of their life stories
From the time that they were young,
But the passing of a Veteran
Goes unnoticed, and unsung.
Is the greatest contribution
To the welfare of our land,
Someone who breaks his promise
And deceives his fellow man?
Or the ordinary fellow
Who in times of war and strife,
Goes off to serve his country
And offers up his life?
The politician's stipend
And the style in which he lives,
Are often disproportionate,
To the service that he gives.
While the ordinary Veteran,
Who offered up his all,
Is paid off with a medal
And perhaps a pension, small.
It is not the politicians
With their compromise and ploys,
Who won for us the freedom
That our country now enjoys.
Should you find yourself in danger,
With your enemies at hand,
Would you really want some cop-out,
With his ever-waffling stand?
Or would you want a Veteran
His home, his country, his kin,
Just a common Veteran,
Who would fight until the end.
He was just a common Veteran,
And his ranks are growing thin,
But his presence should remind us
We may need his likes again.
For when countries are in conflict,
We find the Veteran's part,
Is to clean up all the troubles
That the politicians start.
If we cannot do him honor
While he's here to hear the praise,
Then at least let's give him homage
At the ending of his days.
Perhaps just a simple headline
In the paper that might say:
"OUR COUNTRY IS IN MOURNING,
A VETERAN DIED TODAY."

FANTASTIC NEWS VIDEO: 1932 - young Patton, young Eisenhower, young MacArthur, Pres Hoover, Walter Winchell reporting.
Do you think the military, acting on orders from a broken federal gov't, won't march against it's own??
Hard to believe this happened 80 years ago.

I went to Golden Corral last nite with a couple buddies. Food was great. All kinds of Vet.Hats worn,medals,pins. WW2 on up. Young active duty kids. I think last night I became an honorary vet. Having not served, but a long time supporter. Jim was an Canberra pilot from Brazil, came to USA got drafted and got out as a SGT/driver/photographer/AMU/bodygaurd for Gen. Wheeler in the Early 60's.
Bill is a retired lifer in the USAF as a MSGT combat medic. GI Bills helped both get their PHD's. So we all go to the Corral and were given "I Served" stickers for out shirts. So MSGT Bill is sticking these things on and slaps one on me. "Bill ! But I'm " and Shoots me a "Shut up !!" look and I thought OK. He must have spent a lot years working on that look. So SGT Jim sez "It's ok George, you're with us, we'll handle it." "But I don't like mis-representing .. SGT Jim "Shut up George !" LOL I love all my Vet.friends. Bless thier hearts.

I had lunch at Applebee's and dinner at Golden Corral. It was wonderful to be appreciated, and the GC restaurant was packed with vets and their families! A fellow I sat next to at lunch said he had (free) breakfast at Denny's, lunch at Applebee's, was going to have dinner at Golden Corral, and then get a cup of coffee at Starbuck's on the way home.
