A handful of Seattle businesses, mostly restaurants, are showing their respect for local veterans in a particularly appealing way in this economy: free stuff. Below is a list of the items we know about:

  • Dick’s Drive In: Local veterans and military members get free hamburgers and cheeseburgers starting at 10:30 a.m. until closing.
  • Applebee’s: As part of their “Thank You Movement,” Applebee’s chain is giving veterans and active duty free meals today.
  • Brown Bear Car Wash: At all locations in Western Washington, veterans get a free car wash.
  • Massage Envy: Veterans get free massages today at any location, but an appointment is required as there are limited slots. Make a reservation on their website and see all locations near Seattle.
  • Flying Apron bakery in Seattle and Redmond: They’re offering a free coffee and muffin (or cookie) to any active or retired military personnel all day
