Vail Cascade commemorates Veteran’s Day with free meal

Daily staff report
VAIL CO, Colorado

VAIL – This Veteran’s Day, the Vail Cascade Resort salutes the men and women that have dedicated their lives to serve and protect the red, white and blue. General Manager Brett Schoenfield invites all active and retired service personnel to come to Atwater on Gore Creek, the hotel’s signature restaurant, on Sunday to enjoy a complimentary meal. Additionally, military interested in an extended getaway can take advantage of the hotel’s $99 starting rate now through Nov. 15, a savings of up to 40 percent.

Soldiers know firsthand that a home cooked meal and a restful night’s sleep are hard to come by when deployed. While Schoenfield recognizes that the Vail Cascade Resort cannot singlehandedly make up for the number of missed home cooked meals, late nights or early risings, the hotel aims to do their part to narrow the margin one meal and one room night at a time.

“We are grateful to all military men and women, past and present, that have selflessly given of themselves to serve and protect our country, said Schoenfield. “We are grateful for the time they’ve served on our behalf and it is now our turn to serve them.”
