National parks are saluting our nation’s veterans and Gold Star Families with free access to many of our landmarks.
Veterans Day is commemorated on Nov. 11 this year.
The Department of the Interior says that starting on Tuesday, entrance fees for national parks will be permanently waived for veterans and Gold Star Families, which are military families who lost a loved one in service to this country.
They will no longer have to pay to visit a national park.
“This free entrance to our nation’s lands is a tangible and meaningful way we can honor the service and sacrifice of all those who have worn our country’s uniform,” said Secretary of the Interior David Bernhardt.
