    My husband is a vet (along with all 4 of his brothers and 1 of his sisters), so between the 6 of them, they know ALL the freebies! Thanks for adding to their list.

  • I am so glad that there are so many free options for military families. I’ll have to keep the ones close to me for when family visits!

  • I’ve never heard of the Blue Star Museum program. What a great way to expose members of the military and their families to some of the greatest national treasures!

  • Our military deserves any benefits they can get. I am so glad they can go to those museums and Sea World for free.

  • I love that so many companies are supporting the military and their families! That’s such a good initiative. It is one thing that has always stood out to me when we visit the states – the amount of respect and kindness offered to troops.

    I like the Tutor free service the best. It is fantastic that there are such free services for the military families and not just free meals on Veterans Day.

    There are so many great freebies! I’m not a military family myself, but I think it’s really awesome that there are so many freebies.

  • Sea World is part of Busch, so all of their parks offer the same admission – Busch Gardens & Sesame Place. We’ve taken advantage of it many times!

    This is wonderful! I think there needs to be more like these for these wonderful humans and their families. It’s really great to see!

  • While I don’t know if any freebies, I do know many stores, restaurants, etc. offer military discounts. It’s a great way to help families who do so much for us.

  • This is a great list of freebies. I’m sure many military families would find it so helpful. I’m glad to see so many options for military families to enjoy.

  • I’m always happy to see and patronize companies that offer great discounts and freebies for our military families. Military families can never be appreciated enough.

  • This is a wonderful list. I had no idea there were so many free and discounted places for Vets to visit. I think that’s fantastic!

  • How did I not know about these? Especially Sea World! We were just in Florida and considered an unplanned stop but now I definitely think we should plan a visit soon. This will be so helpful since we are a bigger family.

  • These are awesome programs for military families. We visit SeaWorld San Diego very often because my daughter is the SeaWorld kid blogger and I’m always impressed by how much they give back to the community.

  • So many great companies offering free admission for military families. It is really great!

  • I had no idea there were so many companies that offered free membership or admission to military. My husband and dad are both veterans and I will definitely need to share this with them.
