AmericInn Hotels Around the Country to Support America's Military With Special Veteran's Day Event

Gift Packages for Overseas Troops Will Be Prepared by Hotels to Commemorate National Holiday on November 11

MINNEAPOLIS, MN--(Marketwire - Nov 1, 2011) - In celebration of the upcoming Veterans Day national holiday on November 11, AmericInn hotels across the country will be participating in a special initiative to support America's military members by preparing and shipping gift packages to troops deployed in Afghanistan, Iraq and other bases worldwide.

Participating AmericInn hotels will be organizing donations, merchandise contributions and volunteers to prepare the Care packages during special events taking place during the week prior to Veteran's Day. The Care packages will contain gift items that are not readily accessible during overseas military deployment including personal care merchandise, clothing, food treats, magazines, games and stationary items.

"We look forward to commemorating Veterans Day this year by uniting the AmericInn organization in this nationwide campaign of appreciation for the service of military members," said Paul Kirwin, president and CEO of AmericInn.

AmericInn has sponsored several previous initiatives to support members of the military as part of an overall "AmericInn Cares" commitment to caring, involvement and patriotism. At the company's 2011 Annual Convention earlier this year AmericInn partnered with the national Blue Star Mothers organization to donate over 300 Personal Care Packages that were prepared and shipped overseas to active duty troops. Local chapters of Blue Star Mothers will also support this Veterans Day event.

AmericInn also offers a national discount to active duty and retired members of the military and their dependents. They can receive this discount by requesting the AmericInn Military Rate (rate code: MIL) when they make their reservation at a hotel, AmericInn.com or by calling the toll free telephone number 1-800-634-3444. A military I.D. is also required at check-in.

Veterans Day is an annual state and federal holiday honoring America's nearly 25 million military veterans. Its history dates to the end of World War I on November 11, 1918 and has historically been celebrated on this date each year.
