As we approach the Veterans Day and Remembrance Day holidays on November 11, over 500 B&B’s in the  United States and Canada will be honoring active and retired military personnel with free weekend stays.

They’re participating in the Better Way to Stay – B&Bs for Vets program.

It’s a wonderful way for innkeepers to say thank you to those who serve and protect. I know that each branch of the service has its own oath but for me they all embody the Ranger’s oath from Babylon 5:

“We walk in the dark places no others will enter. We stand on the bridge, and no one may pass.”

This got me thinking about innkeepers who are retired military and other service personnel who will be working on Veterans Day and how I could create a thank you gift for them.  So, I’m putting together  a Virtual Gift Bag which will be filled with goodies to help innkeepers get more bookings.  The contents will be unveiled on Monday  November 11,2013.

In the meantime, if you know of any innkeepers who are active duty or retired military, fire and rescue, police officers, or emergency personnel, please post a link to their website in the comments or on my facebook page at so that I can present them with their gift bag.

P.S. My gift bag isn’t limited to the U.S. and Canada. Because it’s virtual, I can send it anywhere!

Note: This offer ended on Monday November 11, 2013 and is no longer available.
