National Parks to waive fees

PUBLIC LANDS -- National parks will be waiving entrance fees to celebrate Veterans Day weekend, Nov. 11-13.

The Park Service is waiving fees for a total of 17 days in 2011. The Veterans Day weekend fee waiver is the last scheduled for the year.

Fee-free days have been offered the past two years as a cost-friendly family vacation option in the economic slump.
