If you’re not a military member, you can still make a difference on Veterans Day by heading to Starbucks. For every cup of hot brewed coffee sold nationwide on Nov. 11, the coffee chain will be donating 25 cents to Headstrong and Team Red, White & Blue to support the mental health and wellbeing of military personnel and their families.


The Starbucks deal is just one of a handful of freebies that veterans and active military members will find this Veterans Day.
