Most businesses require veterans to show proof in the form of a Veterans Affairs Universal Access card, a military identification card, discharge papers or a veterans service organization card from such organizations as the Veterans of Foreign Wars, Disabled American Veterans and AmVets. Some free offers or discounts are offered by chains. It should be noted that not all franchises operate in the same way as the rest of their chains do, meaning one restaurant may offer discounts for veterans, while a franchised version of that restaurant may not.

Most establishments announce their intentions to offer free items or discounts on Veteran's Day a week or days before the fact, according to the Military Benefits website, a website about military veterans that is not affiliated with the U.S. government or military. This website, along with Military.com, offers detailed lists that contain details on dozens of establishments that offer free items and discounts for veterans.
