Fees at national parks waived for veterans, Gold Star families starting Nov. 11

Starting Nov. 11, veterans and Gold Star families will be able to visit national parks and other public lands for free, under a new initiative from the Department of the Interior. 

Active-duty service members and their families are already granted free access to those sites under existing department rules. The new announcement broadens that benefit to more than 20 million more individuals in recognition of their service and sacrifice on behalf of the country.

In a statement, Interior Secretary David Bernhardt said the move gives all veterans “free access to the iconic and treasured lands they fought to protect.”

The policy goes into effect starting on Veterans Day 2020.
