Most military bases maintain a ticketing office participating in the program through which the military members are able to access the various discounts. In most cases, each base has its own set of local discounts and promotions that relate to specific attractions and businesses in the surrounding area.
Many major chains, such as hotels and car rental companies, frequently offer discounts at all locations for military members, which are frequently available trough the base's ticketing office. Certain major attractions, such as Sea World in San Diego, California, also work with the military to offer special discounted tickets for purchase through the local office or at its park location.
