    Actually, I did not become aware of the ALERRT program until after I had completed my tour as an MP, had returned to my status as a medic, and was attending Small Arms Master Gunner training.

    See I read this one before but I don't think it was explained why they'd be getting one. Post privelages?

    I haven't seen the list of restaurants that are offering free meals to vets, yet. My son (the chowhound) will know, I'm sure. He ate at several restaurants last year starting at WI Lutheran HS in Milwaukee with me. They always put on a breakfast & program with interesting guest speakers. We're planning on going there next Friday, 11/11/11.

    I'll be seeing my son in a few hours & I'll ask him. Since it's his day off of work he'll have his plans for free eating set already.

    Indeed I did. He's planning on going to Appleby's. I believe that's a nationwide chain. There are a few local restaurants here that will be serving free meals.
