Anheuser-Busch offers free theme park admission

By Air Force Personnel Center Public Affairs

RANDOLPH AIR FORCE BASE, Texas - A tribute program that has provided
free admission to SeaWorld and Busch Gardens for more than 4 million
members of U.S. and coalition armed forces and their families has been
extended through 2010.

"Here's to the Heroes," a program sponsored by Anheuser-Busch, was
launched in February 2005 to celebrate the service of military men and
women and the sacrifices made by their families.

"It's gratifying to all of us that so many members of our armed forces
have taken advantage of this program and honored us with a visit," said
Jim Atchison, president and chief executive officer of SeaWorld parks
and entertainment. "This is a difficult time for our men and women in
uniform - and their families - and we are honored to give them something

Free admission is for any active duty, active reserve, ready reserve
service member or National Guardsman representing any of the five
service branches and as many as three of his or her direct dependents.

All servicemembers need do is register online at or in the entrance plaza of a participating
park, and show a Department of Defense photo identification.

Each pass is valid for a one-day admission per person per year to five
of Anheuser-Busch's seven theme park brands. Visitors may choose Sea
World Orlando, San Diego or San Antonio; Busch Gardens Tampa or
Williamsburg; Pennsylvania's Sesame Place; Florida's Adventure Island;
or Virginia's Water Country USA. Discovery Cove and Aquatica parks are
not included in this offer.

SeaWorld Orlando, Busch Gardens Tampa and SeaWorld San Diego operate
year round. The company's remaining parks are seasonal, with varying
opening dates this spring. Each park's operating schedule is available

Anheuser-Busch is a corporate supporter of America Supports You, a
Defense Department program connecting citizens and corporations with
servicemembers and their families serving at home and abroad.
