WASHINGTON, DC – 1 May 2017, American Veterans Committee is pleased to announce a partnership today with Sakina Halal Grill in Washington, D.C. Sakina Halal Grill will offer a 10% discount to Veterans of the US Armed Forces who are members of American Veterans Committee. Last year, American Veterans Committee started partnering with restaurants around the country that are willing to offer discounts to veterans who are members of American Veterans Committee.
Veterans and active duty military members who are not members of American Veterans Committee can join FREE online and take advantage of the discount. The process only takes 10 seconds through our website which is mobile friendly: (http://americanveteranscommittee.org/join).

We salute them for their service and would be honored if they dine at Sakina Halal Grill. We will offer them the discount all day, everyday.” The restaurant is not only providing discounts to Veterans, but also gave away more than 6000 meals to the homeless in 2016 and continues to offer free meals to the homeless.
