It's important to note that this year the free IHOP pancakes on Veterans Day will be given out the day after Veterans Day, Monday, November 12, 2018. This is the observed Veterans Day holiday in 2018.
Veterans Day falls on a Sunday this year, which means that many observe the holiday on Monday. When it comes to dining out, a lot of restaurants honor the day with free meals for veterans and active military on Sunday, as well as on Monday. And then there are some eateries that choose to host free meals or specials on just one of the two days.
