Q: What qualifies a disabled veteran to receive reduced admission rates?
A: The first category is a “100% disabled veteran” as deemed by Veteran Affairs with no further exams. These veterans are issued a Department of Veterans Affairs (DAV) card which gives them access to base facilities, and receive FREE admission to our museum.
The next category is a “temporary disabled veteran” (i.e. 80%) until their status will be upgraded to 100% disabled by DAV. These veterans are issued a Department of Veterans Affairs (DAV) card which gives them access to base facilities, and receive FREE admission to our museum.
The following category, is a veteran who served and has a “service connected injury” but is not rendered as a “disabled veteran” by DAV. They receive a VA card and a discounted admission rate of $9.95 to our museum.
