AmericInn to support America's military with special Veterans Day event

In celebration of the upcoming Veterans Day national holiday on Nov. 11, AmericInn of Moose Lake will participate 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.

AmericInn of Moose Lake will organize donations, merchandise contributions and volunteers to prepare the care packages. 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 are very pleased to join with AmericInn hotels across the country in organizing this community-based military support initiative that will provide special gift packages to American troops serving overseas in appreciation for their service," said Alanca Boedigheimer, general manager of AmericInn of Moose Lake.

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.

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, 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 Nov. 11, 1918, and has historically been celebrated on this date each year.
