November 11, 2019 is Veterans Day. Thank you to all who served our United States of America in military duty.
Also for those who served are some businesses today offering freebies and more to our veterans. Coffee houses such as Starbucks and Dunkin’ Donuts begins with some early specials and also restaurants like Denny’s, Applebees, Olive Garden, Macaroni Grill and many more wish to show their appreciation too. For a more complete list go HERE
Some of rock stars from our favorite bands have served in the military too. Jason Everman who played with Nirvana and Soundgarden served in both the Iraq and Afghanistan wars as an Army Ranger and Green Beret. Maynard James Keenan (Tool and A Perfect Circle) joined the U.S. Army after being inspired by watching the 1981 movie Stripes. Let’s not forget too Jerry Garcia, Ray Manzarek and Jimi Hendrix too although Hendrix left his service early after complaints – among them – about playing guitar too often in the barracks.
Support for our military is felt year around by our favorite bands such as Metallica, Van Halen, Lynyrd Skynyrd and so many others have donated and helped raise millions of dollars to support those who have served.
And let’s not also forget the inspiration too that rock bands have provided for those while serving. Van Halen and AC/DC helped provide a soundtrack for the US Delta Force and Metallica music blasted while our brave members of the Special Forces took down the Taliban.
