My son enjoyed this wonderful honor from the Rose Hotel when he returned from his first tour to Iraq in 2007. He enjoyed it very much and the autographed football from John Madden is one of his treasured items. What a nice way to give these guys and gals a night of luxury after a long deployment of sleeping in tents on cots in the rough environment of the Middle East.

We want to thank the Rose Hotel and the Madden Family for their support of our active duty service members. A gift they will not soon forget.

As Chairman of the Pleasanton Military Families Support Group I would like to thank the entire Madden Family and the whole support staff of the Rose Hotel for their great support and and total caring approach to the dozens and dozens of retuning Veterans from Pleasanton who have served in Iraq, Afghanistan and in the Global War on Terror. These men and women have totally appreciated the night that they stayed at the Rose Hotel with their loved one as they try to return to nommalcy after their tour in combat. Our entire Pleasanton Military Famiily Support Group thanks you for what you do for these local returning Veterans. Keep up the great work and God bless the Madden Family and the entire staff of the Rose Hotel. Chris Miller, Chairman, Pleasanton Military Family Suppor Group.

There is nothing greater than honoring those that serve others selflessly.

Thank you, Rose Hotel for this.

God bless all of you who have served - and your awesome families!

Madden and Miller are class acts! Thank you both very much for your support. My son is a United States Marine and he is my hero.

You disgust me. You are the only roach around here.

Let people be thankful for those that are acknowledging those that are serving our country with honor...unlike anything you've ever done.

The Rose Hotel...

My family member is home from 10 months in Iraq (3rd and final tour!) and I plan to give him and his wife a night at your gorgeous establishment because of your patriotic generosity!

Thank you to you and all our military and their families!!
