King Fisher Fleet, headquartered at Fishermen’s Village in Punta Gorda, is celebrating May as Military Appreciation Month by thanking all active duty service members, members of the reserve components, and all veterans. This very important month reminds Americans to continually honor, recognize, and appreciate those men and women who have served throughout our history, as well as acknowledge their families who have sacrificed in order for us to enjoy our freedom.
Through the “Military Cruise Free” promotion and the “Military Heritage Museum Donation Drive”, King Fisher Fleet hopes to spread recognition for all those who served in the Army, Navy, Marine Corps, Air Force, and Coast Guard.
Military Appreciation Month Programs:
1) Military Cruise Free: All military personnel with a valid military ID, and veterans with proof of service (DD214, American Legion or VFW membership card, VA ID card, Driver’s License with “V”) receive free admission on any cruise offered at King Fisher Fleet during the month of May. Advance reservations are recommended. To reserve, call (941) 639-0969.

The Military Heritage Museum’s mission is to promote an understanding and respect for the rich military heritage of the United States and the sacrifices made by our country’s veterans, living and dead, emphasizing that freedom is not free. The Military Heritage Museum is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) corporation that has been in existence for almost 13 years. The Museum is located in Fishermen’s Village in Punta Gorda, Florida. The Museum is funded by donations and grants.
Kim Lovejoy, Master Sergeant, US Air Force Retired Reserve and Executive Director for the Museum, shared, “Of course, here in the Museum, every month is Military Appreciation Month, but we’re delighted that King Fisher Fleet is making such generous offers”.
