DALLAS –  Loading up the car and embarking on a long road trip for this year’s vacation will have to wait for one military family as the Army & Air Force Exchange Service and Armed Forces Recreation Center (AFRC) Resorts have teamed up to offer an amazing choice of destinations in its latest sweepstakes.

One lucky family of four that wins the “AFRC Resorts Sweepstakes” will receive roundtrip airfare and seven nights’ accommodations at one of four AFRC Resorts:

  • Edelweiss Lodge and Resort (Garmisch, Germany)
  • Shades of Green (Orlando, Fla.)
  • Hale Koa Hotel (Honolulu, HI)

“Whether the winning entry comes from Fort Irwin or the Azores, one lucky military family is going on a vacation like no other,” said the Exchange’s Chief of Staff Col. Tom Ockenfels. “This is one trip you won’t want to miss out on.”

Military shoppers can enter the “AFRC Resorts Sweepstakes” at their local Exchange through January 1.  No purchase is necessary to enter and the drawing will take place on or about Feb. 6, 2012.
