Nov. 10, 2019 (Gephardt Daily) — The National Park Service will be offering free entry to all visitors to commemorate Veterans Day Monday.

“Many national parks have direct connections to the American military—there are dozens of battlefields, military parks, and historic sites that commemorate and honor the service of American veterans,” said a news release from the NPS. “In addition, every national park is part of our collective identity that defines who we are and where we came from as a nation. They are tactile reminders of the values, the ideals, and the freedoms that our veterans protect.”

The National Park Service invites all visitors to remember our veterans by visiting any National Park Service site for free on Veterans Day, the news release said.

“The majestic landscapes, natural wonders, and patriotic icons that we cherish as a society have also inspired military members through the years,” the news release said. “The Grand Canyon, Mount Rushmore, the USS Arizona Memorial, and the Statue of Liberty are just a few of the national parks that have served as reminders of home to those stationed abroad. On Veterans Day, or any day, honor those who have served and sacrificed for our country with a visit to a national park.”
