Click on the sign up here for the info on how to join this if you are so inclined. All except 2 inns that have signed up are on it as of now. Those two will go int hre next batch.

kathleen, this is so wonderful!
how about posts on the different facebook pages for veterans? you need some more writeups and a SHARE ON FACEBOOK button.
i'm going to submit this to some of the big networks to see if they'll run something.
you guys rock! all of you that are doing this!

Hoping enough participating innkeepers feel it is worth $5 (thank you Riki) to kick in for the PR. He is a PRO so knows the best timing. I will e-mail Valerie at Militarystables.com and some of my other military contacts. Post a sign at the VFW, American Legion, CVB.... wherever Vets will see it. We WILL get LOTS of press on this. It is my hope that the inns that are listed on the site will get calls from their local nd other newspapers, etc. Contact your publicity contacts. I started this in February and you can see how far we are in almost July. I hope with the site being live, we will pick up the other States.
Joe will do the big-time publicity for us.

I just created a facebook page for the effort as well. Search facebook for B&Bs for Vets. As soon as we get 25 'likes' I'll get the real name.

That's how you find the page. Type 'B&Bs for Vets' in the search box at the top of your Facebook page.

ps ... i have been getting questions from facebook friends and friends of friends asking about this. yay!
now you just need a youtube video, we'll all go watch it and recommend it, it will go viral and you'll be stylin' ...
my one concern is that folks won't read the whole page, and will think they can have a free room any time. i'm sure you've considered this already.

I don't know what to tell you; when I type that in, the page comes up. There is also a link to it on my inn's page, and I recommended it to my friends so you should see it.

I am trying to see if I can get a file of the video we had from a local tv station last year, but so far no luck. Still working on it, though.

It may come up because you are already a friend or you like the page. It didn't come up for me, either. I ended up clicking on someone else's link in a post on my wall.

or it might be that it won't come up in a general search until we get 25 fans and can 'name' the page. It's hard to tell. If everyone recommends it to their friends, we will get a lot of fans quickly.
