Armed Forces Vacation Club Offering Discounts to Soldiers
Whether service to your country has already ended and you just need some relaxation time, or if you require a break from a current stint defending freedom and democracy, signing up for the Armed Forces Vacation Club (AFVC) could get you there at a deep discount.
According to the AFVC, those who are eligible to sign up and become a member will be offered a week-long resort stay at participating hotels for just $299, plus any additional taxes.
The offer does not last long, though, as veterans must book by May 19. Trips can be purchased for travel dates through Dec. 20, and the discount can be applied to any of the resorts affiliated with AFVC based on a first come, first served basis.
Some of the participating destinations include Orlando, Lake Tahoe, Williamsburg, and Branson.
AFVC director of marketing, Faith Aronow, released a statement about the partnership between her company and the service men and women in the United States:
“As a longtime supporter of the military and its Morale, Welfare and Recreation (MWR) program, Armed Forces Vacation Club is dedicated to providing our military heroes and their families with affordable, quality vacations year round, and especially on Armed Forces Day and during Military Appreciation Month.”
For those unaware of Military Appreciation Month, Congress designated May for the soldiers who have and are currently serving to protect our nation starting in 1999. There are also several military supportive holidays during the month, including Military Spouse Appreciation Day (May 8), Armed Forces Day (May 16), and Memorial Day (May 25).
Membership for the AFVC is free to anyone who qualifies, and while the current deal only lasts a short while, the company helps find past and present soldiers the kind of affordable vacation they need.
For full information and for service members to book their discounted trip, club members can search AFVClub.com and book their vacation online.
