To honor our U.S. servicemen and women Kings Dominion in Virginia held Patriot’s Day, a private day at the amusement park for these brave heroes and their families. It was done in honor of 9/11, now known as Patriot’s Day or National Day of Remembrance. We, along with organizations such as NWR Washington and Navy Federal Credit Union, sponsored military families at the event. For Alpha, it was the perfect way to continue our partnership with Our Military Kids, a group that supports families with deployed or injured parents by awarding grants for kids to participate in activities such as sports, arts, music, etc.
The Our Military Kids families were treated to a day of rides, shows, lunch, and lots of goodies. It was a nice chance for families to spend a fun day together. Some parents were home as part of a temporary leave from their deployment and would soon head back overseas to continue their assignment. We were honored to host the families and to continue to support Our Military Kids in the amazing work they do for these heroes.
