Veterans Day Freebies

Bed and breakfasts - BNB for Vets
B&Bs and Inns are providing free rooms on Wednesday, November 10, in observance of Veterans Day, November 11, to honor servicemen and women currently serving or who have previously served their country. The program was started in 2009 by the West Virginia B&B Association (formerly called MABB) and this year has expanded to include over 40 states and provinces and more than 300 Inns.


Computers - DELL
DELL is giving away 250 PCs to military men and women until Veterans Day. Nominate a service member, or if you are a service member, you can nominate yourself.
Documentary project - A Day in the Life of America's Veterans 11.11.11
The goal is to produce a "day in the life" exploration of Veterans Day 2011, finding and incorporating the most compelling stories about veterans into a unique presentation about the experience of men and women who have devoted a portion of their lives to serve their country in times of both war and peace.

Still and video photojournalists are being asked to contribute story ideas for consideration…parades, funerals, trips to VA hospitals, veterans who served together meeting for the first time in decades…the possibilities range from daily coverage to feature stories, as long as the stories occur on 11.11.11. This not-for-profit documentary has been partially funded by the Tawani Foundation. We are exploring additional avenues for funding and in-kind services as well as opportunities for broadcast and distribution.
Grace for Vets - Free car wash
Grace For Vets is a united front of car wash operators that provide a FREE CAR WASH to veterans & service personnel each year on November 11 to honor their past and present service to their country.
