August 24, 2012: Since 2008 the Gillum House Bed & Breakfast has been providing rooms free of charge for Veterans of the US Military and their spouses as a thank you for your service. We recognize not only the sacrifice of family life made by our Military, but also the unsung sacrifice of their spouses who give their spouse the gift of peace of mind that all is being taken care of on the home front. The spouse who “steps up to the plate” to take care of children, house, bills, all the mundane chores of keeping home and hearth together also deserves our gratitude.
Shinnston honors their Veterans who include a survivor of the sinking of the USS Indianapolis, a Tuskegee Airman, and many other veterans of WWII, Korea (including a doctor who served in the Turkish Army during Korea), Viet Nam, and both Gulf Wars and Afghanistan.
Lincoln High School is proud to have an award winning NJROTC whose Color Guard leads the Veterans Day Parade.
Our Veterans hosted in 2011 served in Germany and in Afghanistan. We look forward to hosting a “full-house” of Veterans in 2012.
Veterans around the United States will soon be able to locate a participating Bed & Breakfast online at Better Way To Stay. Book early because it is first booked, first hosted.
