A Message of Thanks to Service Members and Their Families
Published November 11, 2012
Every day, we give thanks to members of the military that help to protect our Aquarium family and our precious community. On this day, it is especially poignant to recognize those that have and continue to risk their lives for our safety and freedom. Our Aquariums, located in the nation's capital and in Baltimore, give us the unique opportunity to interact with a diverse group of military families, including those of our own Veteran staff members. In the last year, we've been so honored to take part in the Maryland Center for Veteran Education and Training program, employing service members and helping families get back on their feet. We would like to extend an invite to all service members and their families to come visit us any day in Washington, DC and Baltimore with special admission rates: In Washington: Military personnel members can display their identification to receive a discounted admission of $8.95 In Baltimore: So that we can offer a deeper discount, the National Aquarium provides discounted tickets to military bases in the region through our consignment ticket program. If you are in the service, we encourage you to check with your local MWR for discounted tickets for you and your family. In recognition of Veterans Day, this Sunday our Washington, DC venue will be presenting any service members visiting a small token of our gratitude. From all of us here at National Aquarium, thank you for all that you do!
