Applebee's offering free lunches

Applebee's in Selinsgrove and Bloomsburg are among those participating in the chain restaurant's annual promotion to thank veterans and active-duty military personnel with a free meal on Veterans Day.

The free meal is available from 11 a.m. to closing time Sunday.

This is the fourth year of Thank You Movement, which gives Applebee's "the chance to treat veterans and active duty military from across generations with great food, as they share stories from their time serving our country," the company reports.

Last year, Applebee's restaurants nationwide served more than one million meals.
