Optimum and The HISTORY Channel host a Military Appreciation Event

Join us on Sunday, July 21 from 12-4 pm in honoring our local American heroes for a Military Appreciation Event in Union Point Park. Gather with our neighbors for lunch, prizes and ice cream on us. And don’t miss the 440th Army Band performing at 1 pm.

To enjoy complimentary food and treats, you must have a wristband. Visit the New Bern Optimum Store at 3541 Dr Martin Luther King Jr Blvd in New Bern and ask a sales consultant for your complimentary wristband. The first 50 people will get a FREE picnic blanket. There is a max of 4 wristbands per person and quantities are limited. First come, first serve.

Plus, attendees will have a chance to meet Captain Isaiah Tuck. Take a photo with the West Virginia Air National Guard captain and current contestant on The HISTORY Channel’s, ALONE. Watch the new season of ALONE, Thursdays at 8/7c on The HISTORY Channel.
