Veterans Day 2014

Veteran’s Day is a chance for all Americans to take a step back and remember the sacrifices our vets made for our freedom. In honor of those sacrifices, and as a way to say thanks, many businesses in Vail and Tucson are offering special Veteran’s Day freebies to the men and women who serve, or have served, our country.

Some deals are exclusive to veterans and their families. Others are available to everyone.

Take a look at the list below to find businesses in our area that are showing their gratitude for our armed forces today.

Active and retired military can visit Rita Ranch Storage, Car & Dog Wash today before 5:30 for a FREE Ultimate Car Wash ($10 value). Show your military ID in the office for your coupon.

Baskin Robbins

This is a deal everyone can take advantage of – and it’s happening all month!

The November flavor of the month at Baskin Robbins is First Class Camouflage. It’s a marbled ice cream that includes chocolate, salty caramel, and cake flavors. For every scoop you purchase (veteran or not) Baskin Robbins will donate 10 cents to the United Service Organizations (USO). It’s encouraged that you call ahead because this flavor sells out fast.
