My Voice Nation Help

I went to two Subways today and neither either did not know what I was talking about or said that they were unaware of the free 6" sub.  It was advertised on TV, Radio and also in the local newspaper.  Being a Vietnam Vet, it brings back memories of how many of us were treated when we returned home from a war.  So much for Subway's advertising.  I hope that those at Subway can enjoy their freedom.


Subway wants the credit without putting up any of these free subs. Five locations in Philly area not participating. I have more respect for places which do nothing than I do for Subway where they run the campaign as merely a public relations stunt.


waste of time with subway my military co-workers try five locations the response was"we don't participate", may be we won't "participate" in the next deployment.  Thoseestablishments suck.

It's Nice. To do something for a veteran


Thank you for the list Michelle... Im just a little peeved about this one. (Although it is hard to get pissed off about free stuff) 

McCormick & Schmick's: Free lunch or dinner on Sunday, Nov. 13. Space is limited and reservations are highly recommended.

My building has McCormick & Schmick's attached to it... Why not on Friday?
