The National Park Service is giving all Gold Star Families and US Military Veterans a free pass for life. Current military members receive an annual pass for free.
About The Offer
Together with Operation Live Well, the National Park Service wants to thank the military and their families for their service and invite them to visit their national parks.
The free Military Pass is a way to thank current US military members, their families, Gold Star Families, and US military veterans for their service to our country and to encourage them to enjoy recreation on their public lands and waters.
Gold Star Families and US military veterans can get a free Military Pass for life. US military members and their dependents can get a free Military Pass every year. The passes give free access to more than 2,000 federal recreation areas, such as national parks, wildlife refuges, and forests.
Before, you could only get this as an annual pass, and it was hard to get the physical pass because they were often sold out. If you don’t want to go to the park to get one, you can do it online for a $10 processing fee.
