Six Flags America in Largo, MD & Lynyrd Skynyrd: Military Appreciation Day September 22nd, 2012


Throwing Lynyrd Skynyrd in the same sentence as Six Flags may seem a little odd at first but they actually do have a couple of things in common: good times and an appreciation for the troops and their families! On September 22nd, 2012 Lynyrd Skynyrd and Six Flags America in Largo, MD in tandem with the Naval District Washington will join forces for a Defenders of Freedom Appreciation Day.

Six Flags America has been holding military appreciation days for some time now, closing down the park to the public and inviting military service members and their families to a whole day of fun. There possibly is no better way to let loose, leave the worries at home for a day and just have a great time.

On the next Defenders of Freedom Appreciation Day September 22nd, 2012, gates will open at 10 am. This is a private event and tickets must be purchased upfront. Tickets are not entirely free but reduced to only $18/person (regular admission is $56.99 and advanced tickets are $39.99). The first 5,000 tickets sold will include free admission to the Lynyrd Skynyrd concert. Let the run of the ITT/ITR offices throughout the Naval District Washington begin!

THANK YOU! Six Flags America and Lynyrd Skynyrd. We'll see you September 22nd!

Hi Andrea. I just love that title, "Defenders of Freedom Appreciation Day". No, doubt those first 5,000 will be in for a treat with the concert from Lynyrd Skynyrd.

Hi Rebecca, Six Flags has been doing regular events for the military - private or discounted tickets. High five for sure.

Hi Jerry, I do, too. It's got a great ring to it and is so very fitting! You are more than welcome to join us Jerry :-)

Andrea - you're so right!!  Lynyrd Skynyrd really surprized me with his support.  I LOVE the people with some "pull" show so much respect.  It's GREAT!!!!

Andrea - how cool is this!  Wow - it is awesome to see more and more companies having special events - or setting aside special military appreciation days.  We cannot do enough for you and your family.  Thank YOU for serving!

Hi Juli, couldn't agree more! Love the idea and I can only imagine how fast those first 5,000 tickets will be sold.

Hi Louise, it is! There are a ton of companies out there showing their support for the troops and the families. The military discounts are always welcomed but it's not necessarily about saving a few dollars. It's about the gesture, the appreciation, the Thank You!

That's just awesome.  Haven't been to the six flags in GA in years... I stopped when my kids got old enough to go without me.  But I still miss the roller coasters.  :)

Dear Andy (calling from Blue Cross Blue Shield), I'm sorry I missed your call and would have loved to return it. Unfortunately, you did not provide me with a phone number!

It is my understanding that the Six Flags Defenders of Freedom Day is "only" for active duty & their dependents and reservists. Tickets must be purchased on base at the ITR office - a DoD ID card is necessary.

Please feel free to contact me if this didn't answer your questions.
