FARGO - Freedom Day USA is being celebrated on Oct. 10, a day when businesses show appreciation for active military members and veterans.

Forty states in the United States take part in the day, including North Dakota. This year, there are two businesses in the state participating.

Cornerstone Dental in Fargo and Velva Dental Center in Velva, N.D. are offering free dental exams, cleanings and fillings.

Dr. Stacy Goodwill at Cornerstone Dental said when she heard how she could help, she didn't hesitate.

"I had first heard about it at a dental symposium and thought, 'Wow, that's a really great way for me to give back to the military,'" Goodwill said. "It's just a small token of my appreciation."

This was the second year that Cornerstone Dental took part in the day.
