KANSAS CITY, Mo.--The 46 Kansas City-area Applebee’s restaurants are honoring real neighborhood heroes with Military Mondays. Veterans and active duty military personnel receive a 30 percent discount on their meal and soft drink every Monday at Applebee’s.

“Military Mondays salutes local heroes each week for the sacrifices they make every day to protect our country,” said Bob Rentfro, Applebee’s director of operations. “It’s a chance for a hometown company to say ‘thanks’ to our hometown heroes.”

The program kicks off Monday, May 7, and will continue throughout the year. The following Applebee’s locations are included:
