You know our military does so much for the country -- they've -- put their lives on the line everyday -- -- folks who are in Afghanistan Iraq and -- thank those men and women who serve travel TV news has come up with a unique way to.
Help them when it comes to vacation travel and -- Kabul who is -- travel journal journalist for travel TV is joining us here.
To tell us more about this unique program and how they can benefit from it.
-- the big thing is that there's really no one place on the Internet where military personnel that only the military firefighters paramedics police officers first responders.
Can go and find vacation deals the thing is if you look over the Internet they are everywhere.
So I decide to do to my website is a travel -- -- dot com we have a little graphic and analysis a vacation deals for America's heroes and the idea is that I want.
To put all the deals I can find right there deals I vetted as a journalist and each other they're legitimate.
But the other thing is I'm I'm looking for companies to come forward and say we have a specific deal.
Think about all these troops are gonna come home many of them in January.
And when my brother who was it was US -- for more than twenty years came back from Iraq when the first one essential work -- going vacation that's the thing yeah yeah but there's -- mean they don't have a ton of money is I think I -- take a five -- vacation of course they're great deals for example there's one in marathon Florida -- -- way down to keep trying to evacuate and there's dolphins yes and everything the -- Kate yes you haven't lost out absolutely talk today.
Hawks hawks K -- 99 dollars per night on selected dates during the week all the way through February this is the big season for Florida became supposedly -- standpoint marvelous -- -- nine united night.
Not only that the military will have to show the idea for a paramedic firefighter you show your -- when -- checking to make reservation.
But if you want to support the military which I think we all do.
You give a dollar donation firehouse subs they're supporting injured warriors and you've got 20% off your you don't have to be in the military -- Adding -- I think when you're approaching some of these places and talking some of these folks about wanted to participate any part of this program to honor their service.
I'm sure you get a positive response most of the time from these people.
Little positive response the problem is that the there are scams out there to that we're trying to make sure that we we.
Alert the military to.
So we get a very positive response and we wanna give it a more positive response won't be able to say you know we've never -- -- military -- for.
But let's you know the Plaza Hotel true let's offer a -- for a hundred dollars a night against possibly tomorrow night.
-- what's on our military by doing so and then they come to -- been put in front of that audience -- the military personnel concede that.
There are scams what I understand well can we watch for.
That's the thing I notice is that.
I think a lot of his military personnel firefighters who go to Google first of Yahoo! and type in.
Vacation deals for the military I did that last night.
I came up with wind how much of the web sites -- really researched this but the website said.
Cheap flights from military personnel by the time I got to the website it was the same deal I could have gotten from any of the -- Or luring and then man.
Knowing that military personnel might search -- that I don't like that -- I don't think that's really fair I wanna see specific deals are offered just for them so I think it to be careful that the other deals you'll see it if they're sending emails these days saying me coming back from Iraq.
The argument don't know who served we have great travel deals -- we have and this happens with all sorts of this terror.
That most of them are scams and and that's one thing we want kind of felt it was -- When you're saying any -- I -- I take advantage.
In terms of ripping them off of their money -- -- are they just it's just not being truth in advertising in the when they're.
I think it's more -- has probably choose an advertising I don't think anyone insane or very few were saying I want a rip off someone -- -- -- -- -- military.
But I think they know that if I can get them on my site and give him a good deal they might think it's a military.
That's not a word -- right we want specific deals for the military specific deals for firefighters on September 11 I had several friends who are involved in the response many didn't survive.
And you know you think about.
What these people do for us what do you support the war -- not what every political beliefs are.
They -- us so I think businesses could pay back a little bit by giving them an opportunity verification no absolute.
