For those connected with the military who have been especially affected by deployments or news-induced stress: We would love to give you all a hug, high five, bottle of wine, and a shot of tequila, but we can’t. So we rounded up some deals that local businesses are offering to help you take care of yourself. Get your military ID handy and get ready to feel a little better.
