Memorial Day Weekend and Military Veterans Family Travelers to DC

Planit Meetings is excited to partner with the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund to offer discounted hotel  rooms, for Memorial Day weekend travels to DC. A portion of all realized commissions from hotel reservations for DC area hotels for the Memorial Day weekend, made by military veterans or their families, will go to the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund, for their programs.

Planit Meetings has been honored to be working with the VVMF this past year, just as it has been a great privilege to be working with the men in blue for Police Week 2013. When veterans and active duty military families come to the DC area for Arlington Cemetery events, or to DC to visit the Wall, we take care of them. 

For the past few weeks, I have been working with a family, whose brother’s name is being added to the Wall in May...after all these years. This trip to the Wall means very much to them, and we are doing all we can to help them. We were able to negotiate a great hotel rate for the family, at a hotel a short walk from the Wall, with parking and hotel restaurant discounts for the family. We also booked their bus and boat tours, and arranged for free wheel chair use for a family member, during their four-night stay. We're also babysitting at the hotel during one night of their stay -- at no charge -- enabling the adult family members to have one carefree fun night out on the town, to honor their brother.

We cherish the opportunity to give back to the families of our veterans, any way we can, and we go out of our way to do everything possible to ensure that our military veterans and their families get the best, for the least, when they visit the Washington, DC area.

If you’re active duty or retired military, coming to DC for Memorial Day weekend, please let us help you. We can secure for you the hotel that meets your needs and price point. Making a hotel reservation with us will add to the VVMF education fund, re: ensuring the story of our Vietnam war heroes is always remembered.
