2013 Veteran’s Day Meals and Events – Greenville, SC


Here’s a list of all the Veteran’s Day meals I could find over the internet.  I did a little research for restaurants in Greenville, SC that were locally owned and operated and marked them with a graphic below.  I will continue to update this list as I hear things.

A Few Points to Remember!

  • Make sure that you check to make sure these discounts are legit before you go just in case.
  • Make sure you have your Veteran’s ID or DD214 with you
  • Share this day with fellow Vets!
  • Be patient…there will be lots of Veterans out this day!
  • Thank your fellow Veterans.  Especially those who served before you!

Please see my sources for information below.  Thanks!
