In addition to offering free meals on Sunday, Nov. 11, the online Thank You Movement continues this year to ensure our heroes receive Thank You messages beyond Veterans Day.

To reach this year’s goal of 5 million Thank You messages, Applebee’s is encouraging guests to leave a message for our veterans and active military at www.thankyoumovement.com. Thank Yous can also be delivered via Facebook, by using the #thankyoumovement hashtag on Twitter, and through YouTube. Veterans and active duty troops can go online anytime to see and hear the heartfelt thanks of the people they serve.
