    All you Veterans- Don't forget your free meal at Applebees or Golden Corral. -----------------Just saw that you can also get a free doughnut at Krispy Cream if you are a Veteran.

  5. Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent, a new nation, conceived in Liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.

    Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that nation, or any nation so conceived and so dedicated, can long endure. We are met on a great battle-field of that war. We have come to dedicate a portion of that field, as a final resting place for those who here gave their lives that that nation might live. It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this.

    But, in a larger sense, we can not dedicate -- we can not consecrate -- we can not hallow -- this ground. The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here, have consecrated it, far above our poor power to add or detract. The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here. It is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us -- that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion -- that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain -- that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom -- and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.

    Crown Royal and Krispy cream go together quite well. "Have a Day" to all Vets. There are no words to express the depth of our gratitude.

    On the 11th minute, of the 11th hour, of the 11th day, of the 11th month, I was able to take break and watch the color guards on all 4 corners of the main intersection, while an honor guard went to the middle of the intersection and fire a 21 gun salute. Taps followed.

    It felt good to be part of that.

    Thanks to all who serve and have served. As far as the Applebees free lunch, I delivered there today at 11:45. Holy crap.
  15. UpstateNYUPSer

    UpstateNYUPSer Very proud grandfather.

    I was looking forward to my free meal tonight but, holy crap, the wait was 1:45 to 2 hours!

    Should have sat at the bar and waited, but then you wouldn't remember if the food was good or not.
  17. UpstateNYUPSer

    UpstateNYUPSer Very proud grandfather.

    BM, you couldn't get anywhere near the bar! The line was all the way outside.

    I ended up walking next door to Friendly's.

    Dammit! Question, how do they know you are a Veteran. Do you have some lifelong ID card or is it possible to scam a free meal?
  19. UpstateNYUPSer

    UpstateNYUPSer Very proud grandfather.

    You had to show proof. I brought my DD 214 (Discharge Paperwork). Retirees and active duty members have ID cards.

    Gotcha. Did you get the free meal at Freindly's? If not, I'll send you a gift card. BM
