Vets to get special treatment at Flint RiverQuarium

By Len Kiese - bio | email

ALBANY, GA (WALB) –Albany's Flint RiverQuarium wants to say thank you to veterans.

On Veteran's Day they'll let all active duty and retired military members visit for free. It's the first time the downtown attraction has done this for veterans. RiverQuarium leaders say it's simple appreciation.

"Military personnel make such huge sacrifices for our country and we thought it was just a minuscule way of saying thank you for their sacrifices and giving member of the armed forces an opportunity to come and step away from all that they have to deal with," said Flint RiverQuarium CEO Scott Loehr.

The Flint RiverQuarium is open from 9 to 5 on Veteran's Day.
