Red Lion Hotel Anaheim is preparing for a little military fanfare this Veterans Day. The hotel offers members of the military a free night’s stay, a special turkey dinner buffet at reduced prices and free s’mores around the pool. Why? To say thank you, something we should all do, and not just on Veterans Day.

The deal: Active, former and retired military personnel may make a reservation for a free stay on Sunday at the 308-room hotel near Disneyland. The Military Appreciation dinner -- turkey, dressing, mashed potatoes, pies -- costs $12 per person and $9 for children younger than 10. Make reservations at (714) 383-6196.

When: The offer is good Sunday night only, based on availability.

Details: I checked online and found rooms available for the free night. Make sure to make a reservation in advance and bring a military ID to show upon check-in. Also, there’s a limit of one room per family.
