Veteran-owned Wings Etc. Huntington, Wabash, & Warsaw locations offering free entrée on Nov. 11 to all those who served

U.S. service members and veterans will receive a free entrée on Veterans Day at participating Wings Etc. locations

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (Nov. 7, 2022)—In a show of support for all those who have served and to recognize veterans on Veterans Day, Wings Etc. locations in Huntington, Wabash, and Warsaw are offering all U.S. Armed Forces, active-duty personnel, and veterans a free entrée valued up to $15.49 on Nov. 11, 2022.

Wings Etc. Huntington, Wabash, and Warsaw are veteran-owned by area locals Bryan and April Burcroff. Bryan Burcroff retired from the Indiana Air National Guard in February 2022 after 30 years of service. Burcroff was enlisted for 12 years before commissioning and retiring as a Lt. Colonel. In 2007, he was deployed to Iraq. He and April aim to show support for others who serve the nation.

“April and I are active life members of the South Whitley Amvets,” said Bryan. “We know first-hand the sacrifice members of the military make; participating in the Veterans Day meal discount allows April and I to continue giving to those who have given so much to our country and to those who continue to serve at a time in which there is so much uncertainty in the world. This is one small ‘thank you’ we can give to all veterans regardless of status.”

Burcroff also noted that the Wings Etc. locations in Huntington, Wabash, and Warsaw do not limit their support to only Veterans Day—each location also offers military and police discounts daily.

From 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 11, 2022, at Huntington, Wabash, and Warsaw Wings Etc. locations, service members will receive a free entrée valued up to $15.49, with proof of service or veteran status. The offer is good for dine-in only. Some restrictions may apply.
