MILITARY FAMILIES RECEIVE FREE ADMISSION THIS SUMMER
Once again this year, the Frontiers of Flight Museum will participate in the Blue Star Museums program. Blue Star Museums is a collaboration of the National Endowment for the Arts, Blue Star Families, the Department of Defense, and more than 1,800 museums across America to provide free admission to military personnel and up to five family members. The program runs from Memorial Day, May 25, 2015 through Labor Day, September 7, 2015.
Proper identification is required. Free admission is available to any bearer of a Geneva Convention common access card (CAC), a DD Form 1173 ID card, or a DD Form 1173-1 ID card, which includes active duty U.S. military—Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, and Coast Guard, as well as members of the National Guard and Reserve, U.S. Public Health Service Commissioned Corps, and the NOAA Commissioned Corps.
