To all my veteran friends, thank you for your service. I love and appreciate you for everything you've endured to make our world a safer place.

One of my vet friends calls Veterans Day "Vet Halloween," because he goes from place to place getting free stuff. As all y'all should. You deserve a day of free meals and other goodies because you are amazing.

Here's a list of places in Lubbock you can clean up at this year. Of course, locations are subject to change, so you might want to call and confirm before you head over.
