The National Corvette Museum is celebrating Military Appreciation Month in November, offering all military personnel, firemen, police officers, and their immediate families free admission during the entire month. All you need to do is present a military or service ID card and the doors will swing wide open for you.
What will you see? Throughout the 115,000 square-foot museum, there are over 80 rare and classic Corvettes from the past, present, and future along with a host of interactive displays all centered around the Corvette and its history. Educational driving simulators, the “Pit Crew Challenge”, KidZone, and more can be found in the museum’s corridors, along with the Corvette Store that features a wide selection of ‘Vette apparel and gift items.
“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, from November 7-9, the 6th Annual Vets and ‘Vettes event will take place, which features road tours, a poker run, piza party, participation in the Bowling Green Veteran’s Day Parade, and military history team trivia events.
The registration has been extended until this coming Monday, November 4th, and is available for $15 per person. And if you prefer to pay in person, feel free to do so when you get there.
Wounded Warrior Recognition Day takes place on Thursday, November 7th and will feature a complimentary luncheon for all Purple Heart recipients and their spouses in the National Corvette Museum’s Conference Center.
There will be a presentation at 3PM following the luncheon entitled “My Enemy, My Friend” by retired Air Force Brigadier General Dan Cherry.
