Applebee's and Chili's Restaurants were among those in the east honoring veterans and service members Friday with free meals.
The Greenville Applebee's was packed with veterans and service members enjoying the free food. This is the third year the restaurant has participated in the tradition, and is hoping to help top the 1-million-24,000 free meals served to veterans and active duty military across the country last year.
We also checked out the Chili's in Jacksonville as they provided free meals.
There was an entire menu available from 11:00 am to 5:00 pm of free meals and other special discounted menu items for any veteran or active duty service member.
Chili's staff told us they're proud of their military town and excited to serve the men and women who wear the uniform.
