AGAWAM, Mass. (WWLP) – The park Thursday donated 5-thousand dollars to Operation Homefront, an organization that supports the families of deployed service members.
A brief ceremony was held at the park today at noon to show appreciation to our U.S. military members and their families.
According to Joe O’Hara, the program manager for Operation Homefront, “This is part of our valor program where we honor the caregivers for our wounded warriors. It’s great to really focus on the family because we know the whole family is affected when someone is deployed.”
Army Veteran James Clark told 22News, “It’s nice to know that there are people out there that remember and think about the sacrifice a lot of people have made.”
Through July 6th, all active and retired military are invited to Six Flags New England for free. Family members can also get into the park for a discounted price.
