A Suite deal for a Vietnam Veteran

Operation Bald Eagle is honoring our Vietnam Veterans with a special “Welcome Home”. Something they should have been given when they originally returned home from service overseas. USAF Chief Master Sergeant Mike Rooney and his wife were given a Suite Deal in Vegas through Operation Bald Eagle. 

We start off by taking them to their suite at the MGM Grand Hotel in Las Vegas. We wanted to make sure that this couple had a very special weekend from start to finish. We brought them to their suite decked out with special gifts just for them. As well as several surprises along the way.

We take care of everything from the room, food and entertainment. We decided to take them to see both the Blue Man Group and then onto David Copperfield shows. And on their final day, we took them on a very special VIP tour at the Mirage Hotel & Casino to see the dolphins and tigers and lions, oh my! But that’s not all. As part of the VIP tour, they were able to interact with the dolphins.

They told us that the entire experience was the best vacation that they had ever been on. That’s what it is all about. Giving back to those who sacrificed so much for us!
