Day-use fees to be waived for veteransPosted on
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers will waive day-use fees Nov. 11 for veterans, active and reserve component service members, and their families at more than 2,400 Corps-operated recreation areas nationwide in honor of Veterans Day.
“We began this initiative in 2006 to support and honor the men and women who have served the nation and the armed forces,” said Steve Stockton, director of Civil Works for the Corps of Engineers, in a statement. “We encourage our veterans, active and reserve component personnel, and their families to visit one of our many recreation areas and enjoy their favorite outdoor activities.”
The waiver covers launch ramp and beach fees. The waiver does not apply to camping and camping-related services or fees for specialized facilities, such as picnic shelters.
Corps lands and waters provide approximately 4,500 miles of trails, 3,400 launch ramps, and 33 percent of all U.S. freshwater fishing.
