Did anyone go?

We went fairly early (5 p.m.) so we could get back home before Moo started her nightly bedtime meltdown. It was packed and there was about a 30 minute wait for a table. The awesome thing about being there so early was getting to see all the very old veterans. All in all, it was a great night.

We never do any of the veteran's day specials that involve free stuff. I don't have the patience to put up with long lines or big crowds.

I went to the thrift store and got 20% off my purchase, though.

We went, they were very crowded, we had about a 30 minute wait, but it was neat to get to talk to some of the other vets while we were waiting, there was a WWII vet there, really neat!

Hubby said that yesterday he had never had his hand shaked or been thanked so much in a very long time. He remembers coming home during 'Nam and being spit on and called a baby killer, so this really meant something to him.

How do they tell if you're a veteran? Do you only get these things if you did a full 20 and got the id card?
