I know, it's barely spring... but it's a great time to think ahead to the summer months and check out 2012 theme park discounts for military personnel. I have many friends who are military and I truly hope that they are able to take advantage of as many of these special programs as possible.
Busch Gardens: Hero Salute
Active duty, activated or drilling reservist, or National Guardsmen are eligible for free admission under Busch Gardens Here's to the Heroes program. They'll have to register and be sure to come with ID and up to three direct dependents (aka wife and kids or husband and kids) or, if your spouse is deployed or otherwise unavailable, the dependent spouse can still be eligible for this free admission program.

Not free, but worth considering...
