Independence day is one of my favorite holidays. The weather is warm and it’s a great time to get the family together for an outing.

If you’re looking for something to do, many amusement parks are rolling out the red carpet offering free admission to our military personnel and either free or discounted admission for families.

No matter where you are stationed across the United States, there are plenty of 4th of July freebies for military families if you want to turn it into a family vacation. It’s a great way for companies to say thank you to our military men and women as well as their families for all of their sacrifices and service. Enjoy your fourth!
Please make sure you bring your military ID with you for verification at the gate:
