the newport county chamber of commerce and the rhode island defense economic planning commission along with the central rhode island, north central rhode island, narragansett and east greenwich chambers of commerce have teamed up to introduce rhode island salutes, military family discount program. this program is designed to recognize the contributions our rhode island national guard and local military make to our rhode island economy and their contributions to our security here at home and abroad.

this program also recognizes that national guard and military facilities and their personnel are valued members of the state of rhode island. in essence, rhode island salutes is our simple way to say thanks to all of those in the military that have given so much to our state and country.

active duty military personnel and their families are encouraged to shop at the participating stores and businesses and simply present your military id card to access discounts to many wonderful products and items available from quality rhode island merchants.

�the �ri salutes� program is a great way to honor our area servicemen & servicewomen, while also opening up or expanding a large market for area businesses.  we were pleased at the immediate results we experienced once we registered our business.  just one week after registering, we contracted a significant amount of guestroom accommodations for a ri national guard group.  our contacts at the guard were very appreciative of the discount, and i�m not sure we would have earned their business without the program.�
