    Does anyone know if this is advertised on any local McDonald's restaurant websites? Also, does the offer include all military veterans or only active duty and retired?

    bacongrove - it is supposed to be all Triangle and Sandhills McDonald's but you can always call your local restaurant before heading over there just to make sure.

    Why do some feel vets and servicemen need a free meal. Wounded Warriors and other groups are on TV begging for help. Doesn't the government take care of wounded solders? What's the matter? The image of a Vietnam vet is one of a downtrodden loser, still in fatigues, and mentally unstable. Far from the truth.

    Is it only specific McDonald's?

    At least they'll have the emergency equipment handy for their heart attacks and strokes after that McDonalds meal.
