Starting on Armed Forces Day, Saturday, May 19, 2012, active duty service members of the U.S. military and their dependents will be offered a free annual pass allowing free access to national parks, wildlife refuges, national forests and other Federal public lands, as a way to thanking America's Armed Forces.
The free annual pass recognizes the contributions and service of the men and women who serve in our nation's military and an opportunity for them to enjoy the natural and cultural legacy of the national parks nationwide.
"It is with respect and gratitude that we all honor, recognize and support our military service men and women, including park staff, who make great sacrifices to protect our country and preserve our freedom. Park staff look forward to welcoming active duty military and their dependents when visiting San Juan National Historic Site to explore and enjoy military history," said Superintendent Walter J. Chavez.
Annual free passes are now available to active duty military at the visitors' entrance stations of Castillo San Felipe del Morro and Castillo San Cristóbal.
