Free National Park Admission

From American Forces Press Service

The National Park Service offers its last free-admission day of the year to honor U.S. veterans and active-duty servicemembers on Veterans Day, Nov. 11.

The Park Service has nearly 400 parks and other resources around the United States and in American Samoa, Guam, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, Northern Mariana Islands and the District of Columbia.

"From everyone in the National Park Service, I extend gratitude to all who have served in the U.S. armed forces and defended the people, freedoms, and resources of this country," National Park Service Director Jon Jarvis said in a news release. "In honor of veterans, entry to the national parks, which preserve many of our nation's finest natural and cultural resources, will be free Veterans Day. I invite everyone to take advantage of this opportunity and savor places that our veterans have kept safe for us."
