Open Door Policy for Veterans

In recognition for being part of the nation’s military family and in an effort to Say Thanks and reunite the Veterans of America with the Active Duty and Retired service members, KMC is proud to announce, for a limited period, an open door policy for all who have so generously served.

In light of KMC’s continuing efforts to capture military memories and stories of this Historical District we will be providing an avenue giving each visiting veteran guest an opportunity to share military history and stories of interest. Your experience as a veteran is still valuable and important to us in many ways.

Take advantage of this period to reconnect with others in the military family and share with us. Your participation and presence at KMC will generate patriotic momentum while you enjoy the company of fellow service members right here at the Historic Volcano Resort.

American Veterans we salute you!
