DOTHAN, AL (WSFA) -

Landmark Park is now one of 2,000 museums and parks across North American that is offering free admission to military and their families. This program will continue throughout the summer  in a collaboration with the National Endowment for the Arts, Blue Star Families and the Department of Defense.

Organizations participating with the Blue Star Museums network will offer free admission to the nation's active duty military personnel, including National Guard and Reserve, from Memorial Day through Labor Day 2014.

"We are proud to participate in this program, especially since Fort Rucker is so close by and we have a wide variety of family-oriented activities planned this summer" stated William Holman, Executive Director of Landmark Park.  "It is a great way to say "thanks" to the men and women who serve our country."

Anyone who presents a Geneva Convention common access card will be offered free gate admission to the park for up to five members of their family during the stated time period. For a complete lists of museums visit here.
