BOWLING GREEN, KY (10/30/12) — November is "Military Appreciation Month" at the National Corvette Museum and all military personnel, fire fighters, police officers and their immediate families receive free admission during the entire month of November. All American branches including active, retired and reserve members will be honored with this promotion when presenting a military or service ID.
"We are truly a blessed nation and our military provide the safety we have to enjoy our American privileges," states NCM Executive Director, Wendell Strode. "Corvette is an American icon and we invite these special individuals and their family members to experience a tour of the Museum dedicated to America’s favorite sports car."
In addition to free admission to the museum, several special events and exhibits will be featured at this time:
• 4th Annual Vets ‘n Vettes Event – November 8-10, 2012
Regular Registration $10 / www.corvettemuseum.org / 800-538-3883
While many of the participants will have a Corvette, owning one is certainly not a requirement to participate! The event features road tours, a poker run, pizza party, military history team trivia, participation in the Bowling Green, Kentucky Veteran’s Day Parade and more.
Special Displays and Activities
• Aviation Heritage Park, a local group who acquire and restore military aircraft, will have display cases of memorabilia on Corvette Boulevard.
• Holiday greeting cards will be available for people to write messages for the troops. The cards will be sent overseas in late November by Bowling Green Municipal Utilities.
• Country Music Stars & Cars Exhibit featuring celebrity owned Chevrolets.
The museum and its staff hope to show their sincere appreciation to everyone who has served through “Military Appreciation Month”.
