Think this was discussed months ago but now it is going into effect, for an indefinite time period:

Humm.. I'm named after an Uncle who died in WWII.

That said. I'm no longer camping so not an issue.

The problem with programs like this is that as administrations change. The program may be revoked, expanded or just continued... Beyond that I have no comment.

California was mentioned in the above link and although I am a non resident 100% disabled vet the state of California has issued me a Distinguished veterans 50% discount pass to stay in their state parks and also issued me 5 year full fishing license for only $8.48. I do spend a lot of time in the state fishing and camping. Oregon has also given me their veterans pass for many days of free and discount camping at SPs that I used extensively for two years.

I also have the federal Golden Access and America The Beautiful campground and park passes now for many years that I frequently use every year at NF and BLM campgrounds.

Veteran program applies only to admission. As I read it you still the Golden access for discount camping.

How did you get those passes, at the park entry? Or do you have to get them from some state office?

Take advantage while you can. Your life may be revoked, expanded or continued.

If you are referring to Golden Access pass I got mine in person years ago applying at National Forest District office in Colorado and producing the necessary VA paperwork as a 100% disabled vet P&T. Later as backup to my Golden Access (In case I lost it) I applied for and received America The Beautiful pass years ago also.

I sent in the same VA paperwork and completed application forms to headquarters of the Oregon and California State Parks system. Actually in case of California I did everything online at their website sent in the VA letters by email to their email address. Same with the discount fishing license but I had to send a regular check by snail mail for $8.48cents for five year license. Took about 2 weeks for both Oregon and California
