Veterans Day free haircuts, store discounts, car washes and $40 off Amazon Prime
Businesses across the nation are offering services – everything from free haircuts, car washes, flu shots and car-care checks.
While several retailers have weekly or everyday discounts, some are offering extra for the federal holiday.
Proof of service such as a military ID is typically required, and a few businesses will allow dressing in uniform as a form of identification. Discharge papers, VA cards and veteran organization membership cards also can be used to prove service at most businesses.
