Hogan: Free State Park Admission For Vets

Here are some things veterans can take advantage of in the Portland metro area and beyond.

Military members or veterans visiting the parks must present proof of military service at the park gate.

In fact, during World War II, Sequoia and Yosemite national parks were among those that hosted service members in need of rest and rehabilitation.

Many parks will have military-related events and outreach to mark the holiday.

Separately, the University of Maryland announced Friday it would waive new college application fees for members of the USA armed forces starting next fall.

Military veterans will have free admission to Maryland's 72 state parks, Gov. Larry Hogan announced in a statement Friday timed to coincide with the commemoration of Veterans Day, which is Saturday.

"Colorado Parks and Wildlife is proud to thank our veterans and military members by offering free admission to our state parks in honor of Veterans Day", said CPW Director Bob Broscheid.

Sacramento's California Railroad Museum is one of the free State Parks sites, and it will offer steam locomotive excursions, according to the news release.

Residents and non-resident veterans will now gain free entry to parks managed by the state, including Assateague State Park on the Eastern Shore, Deep Creek Lake Park in Western Maryland and Sandy Point State Park in Anne Arundel County.
