Fees waived for vets tomorrow

All recreation-related fees will be waived for veterans, military personnel and their families at federal recreation facilities on public lands tomorrow in honor of Veterans Day. That includes lands under the management of the Forest Service, the BLM, the National Park Service, Fish and Wildlife Service and Bureau of Reclamation. “We want to thank the men and women who have served or are serving our country through military service,” said BLM Director Jim Caswell, a Vietnam veteran and former Idaho state official. “This is a small, but special way in which we can express our gratitude and our
appreciation to them.” Congress passed a law in 2004 allowing for the fee waivers.
