ROOSEVELT, Ariz. –Tonto National Monument will honor veterans and their families by providing all monument visitors with a Fee Free Day this Veterans Day, Nov. 11.

Visitors are exempt from the $5 entrance fee that provides accesses to the Lower Cliff Dwelling and museum, which is located in the visitors' center. Also, active-duty service members and their dependents are encouraged to obtain their annual military pass, an $80 value, at no charge during their visit. The pass provides free entrance to all national parks, national wildlife refuges, national forest and other federal lands. Information about all National Park passes is available at www.nps.gov/findapark/passes.htm.
The monument proudly supports veterans. Three of Tonto's current employees are veterans serving as park rangers and maintenance staff. 
Tonto National Monument protects two cliff dwellings built by the Salado people over 700 years ago. Established as a national monument in 1907 by President Teddy Roosevelt, the cliff dwellings were part of the early archeological preservation movement in America. The Monument is open daily from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. except for December 25. Directions and additional information are available on the Monument's website, www.nps.gov/tont , or you may call 928-467-2241. 
The National Park Service turns 100 in 2016, and this event is one of many that Tonto National Monument will host throughout 2015 and 2016 to celebrate NPS's Centennial.
