It’s hard to picture a much more patriotic car than the Chevrolet Corvette.
And when it comes to supporting the “red, white, and blue,” our nation’s law enforcement personnel definitely rank among some of our most patriotic citizens.
Since Jan. 9, 2015 is National Law Enforcement Appreciation Day across the U.S., the National Corvette Museum is showing its appreciation to these men and women by offering free admission to the museum to active and retired law enforcement and their immediate accompanying families Friday, Jan. 9 through Sunday, Jan. 11.
These folks will also be eligible for a 10 percent discount on purchases over the weekend at the NCM Café and Corvette Store.
Just show proof of service to take advantage of the reward.
“Law enforcement officers play an important role in our community, and often it is a thankless job,” Museum Executive Director Wendell Strode said. “These men and women serve as guardians of our way of life. We would love the opportunity to personally thank them for their service and show them that the staff and members of the National Corvette Museum support and appreciate them.”
Strode said the museum realizes not everyone can visit the museum that particular weekend, so law enforcement agencies can ask for free admission passes for their staff, good for a longer period of time.
To ask for the family passes, agencies may contact the NCM at 270-467-8846 or e-mail [email protected], giving the organization’s name, business mailing address, contact person, and number of officers to receive a pass.
