We just missed launching our new website and blog in time for Veterans’ Day. Regardless, here it is along with our hopes that you had a very happy Veterans’ Day. From what we saw, veterans were honored everywhere – from the NFL to local Louisville establishments that offered great specials for veterans.

Speaking of local specials, we hope to use this blog – in part – to let you know about more local deals for veterans. So please join the conversation and help us keep up with all the great offers.

We hope you find our new site and blog interesting, timely, and useful. We would also like to thank all of you who voted for us at Website for a Change for making all of this possible. Thank you for your support and thank you for joining us today and in the future. Let’s have fun and get things done!
