ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) will waive day use fees for veterans, active and reserve component service members, and their families at USACE-operated recreation areas on Veterans Day, Monday November 11.

 The fee waiver requires only verbal confirmation of service. The waiver covers fees for boat launch ramps and swimming beaches. The waiver does not apply to camping and camping-related services, or fees for specialized facilities such as group picnic shelters.

USACE does not charge an entrance fee to access its parks. Other agencies that manage recreation areas on USACE lands are encouraged, but not required, to offer the waiver in the areas that they manage.

USACE first began the Veterans Day fee waiver in 2006 as a way to honor the men and women who have served our nation and the armed forces.

"We invite our veterans, active and reserve service members, and their families this Veterans Day to launch a boat, swim at one of our beaches, or just spend some time together enjoying America's great outdoors free of charge," said Lisa Parker, Deputy Public Affairs.
