TYBEE ISLAND, Ga. - A vacation. A free vacation. Does that get your attention? Get out a pen and paper. Here is a great opportunity for veterans and their families.
Listen, for those of you who haven't been to Tybee Island, it's about a five-hour drive down toward Savannah, just off the coast. In the summer it's filled with vacationers, but over Veterans Day weekend they celebrate "Tybee Salutes Heroes."
The community will host 100 active and former military personnel and their families. And get this - lodging in some locations - well, it'll be on the house - donated - as a big thank you for your service. Others will have discounted rates for our veterans.
Now the application deadline has passed, but FOX 5 viewers are getting an extension to send in a request to stay that weekend.
- Heroes Parade 1 p.m.
- Memorial Park - following parade
- Dinner and Fun 6:30 pm - 9:30 pm
