Have you ridden a train lately? Train fares can be much cheaper than air fares and for Military and their dependants it just became cheaper.
Amtrak offers a 10% discount off of fares to Military and their Dependants. Per the Amtrak website “Active-duty US military personnel, their spouses, and their dependents are eligible to receive a 10% discount on the lowest available rail fare on most Amtrak trains, including for travel on the Auto Train. You must present a valid active-duty United States Armed Forces identification card.”
