Free entrance to national land that our veterans help defend on certain days of the week?

Seriously? What a slap in the face.

Veterans should be able to walk into a national park and not have to worry about paying a fee for land they help defend ANY day of the year. Admiring the beauty of the land they protect shouldn't even be a question.

Thumbs DOWN.

I believe the OP meant "Free entrance to National Parks on Veterans Day (and other major holidays.)".

So...OP was NOT saying "Hey Veterans, here's your reward: Free entrance to National Parks, but only on these days".

BTW- Most veterans do NOT mind paying for the yearly National Parks card.

HTH.

Not saying it was OP who gets the thumbs down. I'm talking about giving veterans something as small as entrance to a national park for free on one specific day. It's ridiculous.

BTW -- Veterans get discounts at national parks already...

America's Best Idea - the national parks - gets even better with several fee-free days at more than 100 national parks that usually charge entrance fees.*

Mark your calendar for the final fee-free days in 2011:

But is it like New Jersey where you don't pay an entrance fee but have to pay double to leave?
