Heroes' Salute

Thank you Anheuser-Busch for your generosity. For the past several years, Anheuser-Busch has offered military families free tickets to their theme parks in appreciation of their service to their country. Active duty, activated reserve and National Guard families qualify for the Here’s to the Heroes program.

We have graciously accepted the tickets three times, each time heading to SeaWorld in Orlando. Tickets can also be used at SeaWorld San Diego, or San Antonio, Busch Gardens Tampa Bay or Williamsburg, Sesame Place, Water Country USA, or Adventure Island. The tickets are not valid at Discovery Cove or Aquatica.

The appreciation of men and women in uniform is particularly moving during the Shamu Show, where the trainers point out past and present military members and thank them for their service. The gesture was truly genuine and grately appreciated.

Although it was hot and humid, we had a great time. We saw our three favorite shows, Shamu, the dolphins, and the Clyde and Seamore Show. Jake and Justin rode Journey to Atlantis and Jolie and I rode the Shamu Express. Poor Jensen wasn’t tall enough to ride anything except the carousel, so we were sure to take a ride just before finishing for the day.

Thank you again, Anheuser-Busch, for reaching out to military families across the country with your generosity.
