FORT MYERS, Fla.- One of Fort Myers most popular attractions paid tribute to our service men and women with a special officer.
The Edison and Ford Winter Estates offered free admission to veterans and their families. "Uncle Sam" was also there, greeting guests and thanking them for their service. It was a gesture that did not go unnoticed.
Captain Hunter Pritchard is from Washington, D.C. He says, "We really appreciate it. It's a freebie that, you know, would have cost us a bunch of money otherwise." The volunteer working as "Uncle Sam" says, "The people I've talked to have been very appreciative that I personally have thanked them for their service."
The Edison and Ford Winter Estates offers free admission to active duty military all year round.
