A salute to fallen heros. Thank you for your service, sacrifice, and perhaps most of all, inspiration. Our country owes you and your family an incredible debt. Thank you!
I do a 15% discount for all active/retired military and first responders … I love giving back to these people!
I’m from a long long line of vets, former career law and fire dept. I give no discounts. All public service is a voluntary commitment and they get paid for their time. All military since early 70’s is volunteer and they get paid for their time. I do some free stuff for elderly and some single moms my church recommends but no discounts.
I tell every service member I meet. Thank you for your service. Most will appreciate that more than a discount. If they don’t then they served for the wrong reason . Just my opinion. I did not serve so I really have no room to talk. But my father and uncles and both grandfathers did. It was always obvious they appreciate the thank you .
Bingo. We buy meals for every serviceman we see in uniform at restaurants. I greatly enjoy helping others, I don’t enjoy being asked to provide a discount to someone that chose their profession.
Those are all valid opinions I’d say. I just like doing it… that’s how I show my appreciation. Especially because they choose to do those types of jobs. Choosing to join the military or become a firefighter or leo is awsome. Shows good on character id say.
Love hearing people’s take on this. BTW heros can and does include police, firefighters, teachers and many others. Thank you!
We give 20% off to all veterans…around Memorial Day we will do 4 houses for free to Gold Star Famalies.
Right now we are in talks with three local govt municipals to clean their veteran memorials for free twice a year.
Next year I’m leaning towards getting rid of the discount though and offering more free services to Gold Star families and maintaining local veteran memorials.
