FORT RUCKER, Ala. (October 30, 2014) -- Veterans are the 7 percent of the American people living today who set their civilian lives aside and picked up the responsibility of defending the American way of life.

“Family and MWR appreciate the commitment, contributions and the many sacrifices made by our veterans and their families,” said Janice Erdlitz, DFMWR marketing director. “Their contributions are never forgotten and we are proud to recognize them this Veterans Day with the specials being offered at our MWR facilities.”
There will be many food specials at MWR facilities ranging from a free coffee to a free brunch.
