Free Meals for the Military at Airports All Thanksgiving Week

American flagHappy Thanksgiving week! Today through Friday, restaurants and concessions at airports across the country are showing their thanks by offering free meals for active and retired military members. Specifically, as excellently reported by Harriet Baskas at Stuck at the Airport:

“In what has become a holiday tradition, Paradies Lagardère, which operates many retail and restaurant outlets in North American airports, will be offering active or retired military a free meal during the week of Thanksgiving ( Sunday, November 20, through Sunday, November 27 ) in almost 50 airport restaurants listed below as part of the Treat our Troops program.

A ‘meal’ includes one menu item, which can be an appetizer, salad, sandwich or entrée and a non alcoholic beverage.

In ‘coffee’ or ‘grab & go’ locations, the meal can be one prepared grab & go item, such as a pastry and a prepared coffee or bottled/fountain beverage. (Bagged candies, chips, granola bars, etc., aren’t included.)

Active and retired military service men and women just need to show their military identification when ordering or checking out to take advantage of this promotion, which is limited to one meal per customer per day.”

It’s a great gesture if you ask me. Check out Harriet’s full story for the list of participating airports/restaurants. And for another way to give back this holiday season:
