Riverbanks Zoo today is giving free admission to veterans and those still in the military to show their appreciation for Veterans Day.
Servicemen and women just need to present their military ID cards. Family members who accompany military personnel and veterans also are eligible for a discount. Tickets are $8.50 for adults and $7.25 for children ages 3 to 12. Admission is free for children 2 and under.
Graduates of Fort Jackson's basic combat training who come to the zoo in uniform on the Friday of their graduation also receive free admission.
