Free “Honoring Service to America” tickets will be provided to immediate dependents of currently deployed troops with appropriate identification. Military veterans who separated before retirement can bring a copy of their honorable discharge paperwork, form DD 214, as identification of service. These special tickets are available only at the Colonial Williamsburg Regional Visitor Center and on-site ticket sales locations including the Lumber House Ticket Office, the William Pitt store in the Revolutionary City and the ticket window in Merchants Square.
