Let’s celebrate our Veteran heroes.
This year’s Memorial Day plans will look a bit different from the past. You can still have a cookout with your immediate family at home.
But for many veterans in your life, and in our community, may want to take advantage of discounts for carryout deals so they can enjoy eating delicious food and save a few bucks.
Our military heroes deserve so much credit and respect for their duty to our country and the least we can do for our men and women in uniform is honor them with restaurant discounts on Memorial Day, all weekend long, and all month long.
Many of these restaurants are now extending the discounts to honor heath care professionals, police and firefighters, etc.
Military service members (and family in some cases) can receive freebies or discounts from a few downriver restaurants as we honor them on Memorial Day.
We compiled a list of restaurants offering Memorial Day discounts…
Burger King: From May 22-25, get free french fries through Postmates. All you have to do is spend $15 and type in the code “FRYDAY” at checkout for some crispy-hot potatoes delivered to your door.

It’s a shame that there are only a few restaurants on our local list. The next time you visit a popular restaurant in the downriver area, ask them why they don’t honor the military on Memorial Day with any specials? It would be nice if we can expand this list for next year.
Well, don’t fret. There are more great restaurants outside of the downriver area that offer Memorial Day deals. Check out the entire discount list over at Military.com.
