This is great-will be doing this for sure. We need more ways to celebrate veterans.
We do, but we need to do a better job of separating honoring those who have fought/served and our fetishization of military power. Maybe actually funding the VA/jobs programs for troops and stop giving the military a blank check to buy pointless military toys.

I'll be earning this badge though, finally an apple watch user (SE 44MM) and loving it. haven't missed a work out day since I strapped it on.

Apple.com has a veterans dedicated shopping section that’s not publicly advertised but anyone who serves or has ever served can log in with their id.me account by heading into the Veterans and Military Purchase program through apple.com that legit gives you a decent 10% discount on apple products!


I use the service to purchase it online and pick it up locally, it’s legit!

I celebrate veterans day by writing my elected representatives and asking why veterans have insufficient healthcare. But this is cool too I suppose.

Worth noting there is a purchase limit online but that you can also now use it in store, jus ask and show your ID.
