From the Flint Hills Discover Center Foundation, Manhattan:

In the eleventh month (November), on the eleventh day, at the eleventh hour marks the 100th anniversary of the end of World War I, which occurred in 1918. On Monday, November 12, in observance of Veteran’s Day, the Flint Hills Discovery Center will provide free admission to all military personnel active duty, retired and their families.  FHDC has honored military personnel and families with free admission on Veteran’s Day since 2013.  This is made possible from a grant secured by the Flint Hills Discovery Center Foundation through the Greater Manhattan Community Foundation.  Additional funding will be used to continue honoring our military family and friends.  If you are active military, retired or family come by on November 12, and spend some time with us at FHDC!
