2020 is the year for adventure, especially for disabled veterans. The National Parks Service is offering disabled veterans free access to any national park.
From Hawai’i Volcanoes National Park to Dry Tortugas National Park, Mt. Zion to the Smokey Mountains and everything in between; they’re all at your fingertips and it’s totally free.
A free, lifetime pass, plus a $10 handling fee is available to U.S. citizens or permanent residents of the United States that have been medically determined to have a permanent disability (does not have to be a 100% disability) – that provides admittance to more than 2,000 recreation sites managed by five Federal agencies.
With more than 330 million people visiting America’s most beautiful parks every year, why not fully swing the doors open to those that have served. Parks are expected to see a massive influx from American veterans due to this partnership between the U.S. Department of the Interior, National Park Service, Forest Service, Fish and Wildlife Service, Bureau of Land Management, the Army Corps of Engineers and the Bureau of Reclamation.
Disabled veterans can get free access with an Access Pass on their cars which will also grant free access to anyone in that vehicle.
Passes can be ordered online by CLICKING HERE.
For veterans to be able to take advantage of this offer, all they have to do is submit proper documentation of his or her service-connected disability, along with proof of identification and a $10 processing fee. A Veterans Administration letter of service connection is enough to satisfy this requirement.
