Veterans Day


While Memorial Day honors those who gave their lives in service to our country, Veterans Day serves to recognize all of our veterans. Since 1918, observance of Veteran’s Day is at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month. This is the time and date that World War 1 officially ended. So, on November 11, parades and patriotic speeches will occur throughout America, including right here in Oklahoma.

The staff of LeisureTime RV wish to add our thanks to our veterans as well as our active service personnel. It is with humble gratefulness that we recognize these people who have served throughout the world, protecting our freedom.

As we approach November 11, you will likely hear more and more about Veterans Day. An increasing amount of companies and organizations are treating veterans to discounts, free meals, and free admissions to recognize their service. This year, many of these same companies have extended these offers through the entire weekend. Here are just a few:

Lowes and Home Depot are both offering veterans 10% discounts for veterans day. There are restrictions, so check with your local stores for details.

National Parks are providing free admission to veterans for the entire weekend.

Big Lots and Dollar General Stores give 10% off to veterans on November 11.

Seven-Eleven is offering a free Slurpee to all veterans and active duty service men and women on Veteran’s Day. The offer is available from 11am until 7pm.

Applebee’s is giving veterans and those actively serving a free meal on veterans day. Drinks and gratuities are not included. Last year the restaurant chain gave away over a million meals on that single day.

Check with your local retailers and restaurants to see what specials they are providing.

We encourage your attendance at any local Veterans Day events scheduled in your area. Thank a veteran for their service. It will make you, and them, stand just a little more proud.

A huge salute to all of our active and non-active military personnel from LeisureTime RV. We are grateful being your Oklahoma RV dealer of choice, and grateful for your service to our country.
