The Mighty Eighth Air Force Museum is launching an initiative to encourage area residents to take advantage of what is right here at home.
The museum has declared November community appreciation month for the Coastal Empire and Lowcounty, and has reduced its regular admission rate of $10 for adults and $6 for kids to only $5 for adults and $3 for kids.  
The dates are:
• Nov. 8-15: Liberty County residents     
• Nov. 22-29: Bulloch, Effingham, McIntosh and Long Counties residents       
In addition to the reduced rate, guests will also receive a 10 percent discount in the gift store and a free beverage with the purchase of lunch in the Crown and Eagle Cafe. Now is the perfect time to visit the Mighty Eighth Air Force Museum.
Activated in 1942 in Savannah, the Eighth Air Force was an important strike element in World War II and remains an active force today. The Mighty Eighth Air Force Museum honors the Eighth’s legacy by preserving the stories of courage, character and patriotism displayed by the men and women of the Eighth Air Force from World War II to the present.
The Mighty Eighth Air Force Museum is in Pooler at 175 Bourne Ave. off I-95, exit 102. For more information, go to or call (912) 748-8888.
