WASHINGTON, Oct. 26 (UPI) -- The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers announced plans to waive fees at recreational areas they manage for veterans and active service members on Veterans Day.
The announcement affects over 2,800 recreational areas, including beaches, boat launch ramps and other areas. Service members and veterans simply have to verbally confirm their service when visiting the locations. Other areas are encouraged, but not required to join in waiving area fees. The waiver will not apply to camping locations.
