Via Colonial Williamsburg Press Release:
Free Admission extended to Active Duty Military, Veterans, Reservists,
Retirees and their Dependents May 27-30
This Memorial Day weekend Colonial Williamsburg honors service to America with free admission tickets for active duty military, reservists, retirees, veterans, national guardsmen and their dependents, made possible through a $100,000 grant from the Home Depot Foundation.
The service member need not be present, and free Honoring Service to America tickets will be provided to dependent family members of currently deployed troops with appropriate identification. Veterans who separated before retirement can bring a copy of their honorable discharge paperwork, form DD 214, as identification of service. These weekend-long admission tickets are available onsite at the Colonial Williamsburg Regional Visitor Center, Lumber House ticket office and the Merchants Square ticket window.
A Memorial Day commemorative service begins at 10 a.m. on May 30th to honor service members who died serving their country. A procession with the Fife and Drum support will begin at the Governor’s Palace and proceed to Bruton Parish Church, ending at the Capitol. Wreaths will be placed, prayers given, and volleys fired to honor soldiers of the American Revolution, the Civil War and other conflicts. This service is free and open to the public.
