Disabled Veterans Granted Free Lifetime Access to National Parks

On June 29. 2020 lawmakers passed the Wounded Veterans Recreation Act, a bill that grants veterans with service-connected disabilities free lifetime entry to the country’s 400+ national parks.

According to an article published by Stripes.com, “The Wounded Veterans Recreation Act, which now goes to the House for consideration, amends the current eligibility standards for national park passes. The bill would grant the passes to millions more U.S. veterans. Now, veterans must have a 100% permanent disability to receive free lifetime entry. If approved by the House, the bill would grant a National Parks and Federal Recreational Lands Pass to any veteran with a disability rating through the Department of Veterans Affairs.”
