Our Veterans and Military will benefit because of your gratitude and appreciation as a contributor in thanking them for their service. In addition to helping them you will be supporting your own business in as much we will make Veterans and Military organizations aware of your discount and post your business on our website so that other Veterans/Military will know and can visit your business.

Further the program will provide a decal to post on your door or window of your business identifying you as a member of the Veterans Appreciation Program.
