On Sunday, we took time to reflect on the contributions of our active duty service members and veterans. Many restaurants and other groups offered discounts to those who served, and the benefits continue into Monday in many cases.
Here's a look at some places offering free meals or discounts to service members, veterans and their families.
Denny's - The restaurant is offering free, all-you-can eat pancakes on Monday to all veterans and active duty personnel.
Golden Corral - Veterans get a free meal from 4-9 p.m. as part of Military Appreciation Monday. The restaurant will also be donating to Disabled American Veterans.
