Vermont Select Registry Members Honor Their Troops

 

A group of Vermont’s Select Registry inns and bed and breakfasts are offering free stays this winter to members of the Vermont National Guard, who are returning home from a one-year tour of duty in Afghanistan.

The Vermont Select Registry inns are offering a free one-night stay to any returning Guard member during the months of January, February and March 2011; the offer applies to stays on Sunday through Thursday nights.

The offer was organized by Dan Brown, co-owner with his wife Michele of the Swift House Inn in Middlebury.  Brown, a retired Navy pilot and father of a son currently serving in the Mid East, said he wanted to do something to recognize the contributions Guard members have made to the country, and to honor the sacrifices they have made.

“These fine men and women have endured incredible circumstances that most Americans can’t even imagine,” Brown said.  “My fellow innkeepers and I wanted to do something to recognize their service and tell them, in a heartfelt way, ‘Welcome home.”

Guard Members wanting to take advantage of the offer need only to contact one of the participating inns.  Here is a list of the participating inns:
