Businesses across America recognize the valuable contributions our active duty and retired military families make by offering free admission to museums, water parks and other family attractions.   For those traveling near a military base, make (down right cheap 🙂 ) reservations for space-available accommodations by calling  the following phone numbers:  

Army: 1-800-GO-ARMY-1  

Air Force: 1-888-AF LODGE  

Navy: 1-800-NAVY-INN  

 Happy Memorial Day!
