I posted a link to free toothpaste a while back but a moderator deleted it for some vague reason.

I thought this sort of LBYM type of thing would be appreciated.

Can you post it again? I missed it and could use some freebies.

I wonder what the catch is - do you have to sit and eat with a Financial Planner?

I was skeptical last year when I took advantage of this offer that GC has been offering for quite a while.

Not only do you NOT have to bring your DD214 along with you, all you have to do is say "I'm a vet" and they give you a tray, utensils and a drink with a cheery, "Thanks for your service." After all, who would lie about such a thing?

I and some veteran friends (all retirees) took advantage of this a couple of years ago. It is fully as advertised, we had Retired Military ID's but they never even asked to see them, of course your non veteran companion, if any, must pay. Strange when a company actually tries to "walk the walk" many are skeptical.

Thanks for posting it Mikeyd.
