Golden Corral FREE Veterans Military Monday Meal

Once again this year, Golden Corral is offering a free buffet dinner, including beverage and dessert, to all veterans and current military personnel. Golden Corral’s Military Appreciation Night FREE Veterans Day dinner will be offered on Monday, November 14 from 5:00-9:00PM. For 2016, Military Appreciation Monday will be held on the Monday following Veterans Day.

This will be Golden Corral’s 17th annual military appreciation dinner. The free meal is available to any person who has served in the US Military (retirees, veterans, active duty, National Guard or Reserves.) No identification is required to receive this special meal deal.

Personally, I think this is a wonderful gesture and a great way to say “thanks!” to the brave men and women who protect and serve our country. Don’t miss the Golden Corral Military Appreciation Night: Monday, November 14, 2016. Available at participating restaurants nationwide.
