November 11 is Veterans Day.

Every year as part of recognition and gratitude for their service, restaurants and businesses offer free meals and discounts for veterans and active-duty service members. However, we do not have to wait until November 11 to honor our veterans and service members. The Tulsa City-County Library has compiled Veteran Resources to assist veterans, active-duty service members, families, caregivers or anyone interested in supporting our troops.
