Vets get free admission to National Parks during Veterans Day weekend
The National Park Service is offering free admission to its 401 national parks for veterans during Veterans Day Weekend, Nov. 9 to 11.
Of those 401 parks, 94 are National Park Service battlefields, military parks, cemeteries or military-related historic sites, according to a news release from the NPS.
“Every national park tells a part of the American story, and many of the parks have a direct connection to those who have served in the military through the years,” said National Park Service Director Jonathan B. Jarvis in the release. “I invite everyone to come to a national park to commemorate Veterans Day, whether it is to learn more about those who have given so much to defend our freedoms or to simply enjoy the beauty and majesty of the land they fought to protect.”
