Hard to believe, but a year ago, after my trip to Gulf Shores, Alabama, for the World Food Championships, I was at the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex celebrating the opening of the Heroes & Legends featuring the U.S. Astronaut Hall of Fame ®. I’ve certainly had quite the year and time certainly flies!
Veterans Day Weekend 2017: U.S. Military Heroes Receive Free Admission to Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex
To celebrate the first anniversary of the opening, the opens in a new windowKennedy Space Center Visitor Complex is thanking U.S. military heroes by extending complimentary admission Nov. 10 – Nov. 12, 2017. In addition, up to three guests receive 50 percent off admission. U.S. service members (active duty, reserve, retired or veterans) can purchase tickets for Nov. 10, 11 or 12 opens in a new windowonline or on-site. Status must be verified either online through opens in a new windowID.me or in-person with an active duty military ID, retired military ID or dd214 documentation to redeem the offer.

This generous offer to U.S. military heroes over Veterans Day Weekend fits perfectly with the one-year anniversary of Legends & Heroes and the U.S. Astronaut Hall of Fame. This KSC attraction is informative, reflective, and highlights the human spirit and determination needed to launch into space. In the name of space exploration, advancement of science and technology, and even national security, astronauts have risked (while some have given) their lives, just as those who selflessly served in the armed forces.

Of course, this free admission to members of the U.S. military and veterans, includes other Kennedy Space Center attractions such as a stroll through the Rocket Garden, 3-D movie, and Space Shuttle Atlantis.
