    I was at the Murrells Inlet, SC Applebees this morning for lunch with a friend – both of us veterans. The owner or manager, Mr. Carpenter, was at the door and when I said I was a veteran he asked for ID. Not having any military ID with me (served in the ’60s) he refused me the veteran’s free meal. I know for certain that not everyone in the restaurant receiving the free meal had valid military ID. The person with me was wearing a vest with Cold War and Vietnam sewn on decals was not asked for any other ID. Anyone could have bought that vest on-line if they wanted. I feel this selective discrimination – and by someone most probably not a veteran themselves – was deplorable and uncalled for. I served my country willingly and feel the right to receive the same benefits of any other veteran. Several people regularly working at this restaurant know me and know me as a veteran. My DD214 is in a safe place. I don’t see the need to carry it with me. Why should I be discriminated against. I could have gone elsewhere, however chose Applebee’s for my lunch which didn’t happen. I did not eat as I didn’t feel it right for me to pay while my fellow veterans were eating for free. Guess I better go on-line and buy a cap or something for next year’s Veteran’s Day lunch.

    Thank you for the recognition on this day set aside for veterans. I am an Iraqi Veteran, Husband to a wonderful supportive wife, and father of two. Preston (5 yr old), Nelson (2 yr old) enjoyed our lunch at our local Applebee’s here in Oxford, Mississippi. The restaurant was packed full of veterans celebrating the day and being waited on a great group (James, Megan, Tammy). Again thank you for what you did for all the veterans today!!

    THANKS for the Vet “Meal” OFFER. Sorry I ordered

    doghy noodles. Luckily I can go to Golden Coral on
    Monday. I’ll let others know.

    Richard Field, let me first say thanks for your service, as I am a veteran myself. But I have to agree with you. Applebees offers this mean on their own accord, they don’t have to do it. So you sitting here complaining about how you didn’t follow their policies is ridiculous. All you have to do is make a copy. Sounds to me that you think things should be just handed to you for your service. And if you think that then that is just sad my friend.

    I went to applebees in Wisconsin Dells. I have hip and back problems so it bothers me to sit in a booth or on wooden chairs. So I asked if I could get my free meal to go and was turned down. All it said was they give a free meal to Vets on Veterans day, nothing about whether it was take out or inside only. I feel I was cheated because of it.

    Had dinner with a lifelong friend at the Budd Lake N.J. Applebys…He, like me, was a Viet Nam vet. The staff could not have been nicer. Many came over to us and thanked us for our service. Our thanks go out to Applebys for this tribute to veterans…thank you
