LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) – Today, we celebrate the brave men and women who have served this nation through service in our military branches. While the coronavirus pandemic has forced several Veterans Day events to go virtual this year in Los Angeles, Ventura and Orange counties, it has not stopped many local businesses and national chains from offering discounts and free products and services to those who have served.

Some offers have restrictions so please check the individual websites before heading over to receive your discount or free item. Offers available Wednesday, November 11th only, unless otherwise noted.
