This month of May is officially Military Appreciation Month!
This represents a month long series of holidays recognizing military children, spouses, and all of our armed forces. And above all, the month culminates with Memorial Day, a solemn time to reflect on the ultimate sacrifice paid by so many of our military and their families throughout our nation's history.
Memorial Day weekend is also the official start of summer, and many vacation and travel plans kick off with a visit to friends and loved ones across the country and around the world.
While at Veterans Advantage our partners celebrate and support members of our country's military every day of the year, some other retailers are jumping in this month with their Memorial Day recognition.
In a special roundup for the holiday, we are selecting popular Veterans Advantage discounts available year-round for all VetRewards subscribers. Meanwhile, some other "military discounts" are offered by retailers only in May and limited to the Veteran or active duty military member.
As always, carry your VetRewards Card and use it in recognition of your military service this Memorial Day. And save!
