I received an e-mail today saying the federal government is changing fees for all veterans and God Star families effective Nov. 11 all federal parks and BLM will have free use interence from then on. Does anyone know anything about this or is it a false news?

I believe it's just for Veterans' Day, Nov 11th ... it's not new. I will check with my VA group and find out if it's permanent. Will check back in a day or so.

I wonder if that includes canoe/kayak/boat launching fees like they have in the Everglades National Park ?

Sounds good. I wonder how the "next of kin" will be enforced to prevent abuse.

Great news! I’m glad we are being recognized for our service.

Wonderful news. I believe it is wrong to 'lease out' the management of our national parks. I can understand leasing out vendor contracts for food and other services but not park operations. Veterans earned this perk through their service. Thanks to all who served.

Do not go there.

The Moderators will delete the TRUTH.

Thank you to all who served.

I agree with Entrance Fees, all other you should pay for.

Many veterans will not have any of the four acceptable ID's including myself. A state park in MO did something just like this and I said what about me? That park did write back and say a DD214 would also suffice.
