Attention Applicants: IHOOT has no control over availability. Do not purchase travel-related before being issued a confirmation unless you've secured personally funded reservations and are hoping for the cost-savings if free accommodations are available. That way, if you receive a confirmation for free lodging for the dates and/or locations you requested, you can cancel the paid reservations enjoy thousands of dollars of savings. Even if your Vacations for Vets locations are not available, you'll have 365 days to submit new locations and/or dates using the existing processing fee for your next vacation request so you won't lose it.
