Veteran's Day in WILLIAMSBURG

Real Estate Agent with LONG & FOSTER



Colonial Williamsburg is honoring the sacrifices of military families with complimentary admission passes to active duty military, reservists, retirees, veterans and their families from Nov. 7-11, 2008.

The Honoring Service to America pass includes admission to Colonial Williamsburg’s Historic Area and museums, including the Capitol, Governor’s Palace and Basssett Hall, the Williamsburg home of Foundation benefactor John D. Rockefeller Jr. and his wife, Abby Aldrich Rockefeller. 

The pass also includes an Orientation Walk, a walking tour that provides an overview of Colonial Williamsburg and its Restoration, free shuttle bus service to and from the Visitor Center, a viewing of the movie, “Williamsburg, The Story of a Patriot,” and free parking at the Visitor Center.         

The service member need not be present, and free passes will be provided to immediate family members of currently deployed troops, with appropriate identification. Military veterans who separated before retirement can bring a copy of their honorable discharge paperwork, DD Form 214, as identification of service. These tickets are available only at Colonial Williamsburg on-site ticket sales windows.

In addition to providing complimentary admission tickets to these honored guests, Colonial Williamsburg offers special rates to military personnel and their families at any of its five on site hotels, the closest lodging to Colonial Williamsburg’s Historic Area, museums, dining, shopping, golf, children’s activities and more.

Hi Yvette!

Anyplace is a great place to celebrate our Vetrans... but I bet Williamsburg is a place to experience this celebration in a special way.  Thanks for the info!

Yvette, I think this is a great way to honor our Veterans. I love the Williamsburg area and all of the history there.  An agent in my office is a Veteran and he is shutting his phone off tomorrow and giving his assistant the day off.  I thought that was SO nice.  Our Veterans deserve much more than we can ever give them, that's for sure!

HI ELIZABETH! I agree!  I think our military deserve more pay (I'm biased cuz my hubby is active duty)! 

Thanks for sharing your thoughts!  Have a wonderful week!
