White Mountain National Forest Participates in Fee Free Veterans Day for Veterans and Members of the U.S. Armed Forces
The White Mountain National Forest is pleased to announce that all day-use fees will be waived for U.S. veterans, members of the U.S. armed forces, and their families on Saturday, November 11.

The Department of Agriculture Secretary Mike Johanns and Department of the Interior Secretary Dirk Kempthorne announced that, beginning this Veterans Day, U.S. veterans, members of the U.S. armed forces, and their families will be admitted free-of-charge on Veterans Day to public lands managed by the Department of Agriculture and Department of the Interior. This Veterans Day waiver will apply on November 11 of each year, regardless of the day of the week.

Recreation fees will be waived across the White Mountain National Forest. However, fees will remain in effect for overnight camping, cabin rentals, permits, reservations, and activities offered by concessionaires.

Not sure how they can recognize veterans (had to turn in my M-16 when I mustered out so can't leave it on the dash) so this may just become a free day for everybody

Now if they would make it free for Moms on Mothers Day, Christians on Christmas, etc. we could eventually get it to 365 days :-)

Some places require you to show a copy of your DD-214 discharge papers as proof, not sure if they do though.

I think veterans should get a lifetime free pass.

Yes, Moms should get a free pass, too. Although, come to think of it, maybe that makes us sort of veterans, too? ;)
