Not active duty or a vet but I am going to patronize Applebee's on wednesday and tell them why. Think they should know how much this means to the rest of us. Think I will pay the tip to a few of the waitress that are serving our military men and women! I passed the link to some friends about this. Hope other do the same. Spend some $ at Applebee's in apreciation of their very good deed!
Thank You for your service to all our service men/women and Veteran's...
