US military can get FREE tickets to shows, concerts, sports events and other entertainment programs nationwide, through the Veterans Ticket Foundation (VTF), which is dedicated to ensuring that our brave men and women in uniform have quality time with their families. The tickets are generously donated by the theaters or event promoters, as a means of saying “thank you”.
Military families need to sign up for the program first, then search for available tickets by state or date, then request tickets to the event you want. Thousands of performances and events are available nationwide at any time. When I searched recently, ticket availability in the New York City and tri-state area included a couple of New York Islanders hockey games and several Off-Broadway shows, including family-friendly shows.
VTF is always looking for promoters interested in donating tickets, so if you know of a show or other event with a few tickets to spare for US Military, let VTF know.
