Refuge Hands Out First Military Pass

Pass

Six military families visiting the National Elk Refuge this past weekend were able to avail themselves of the recently-expanded America the Beautiful National Parks and Federal Recreational Lands Pass which offers lifetime access to federal recreation lands to recipients.  The program was expanded earlier this month to be available to active duty military members and their families.  Refuge Spokesperson Lori Iverson says all six of the servicemen in the group are a close-knit group who wanted to take advantage of the offer as they spent a last weekend together before being reassigned.  All had recently returned from deployments in Afghanistan and Iraq.  The group is to be split up by their reassignment with one going to Germany, another to California, a third to Ohio and three still waiting their assignments.  Upon receiving his pass, one of the servicemen remarked that he and his wife look forward to using it to explore other recreation areas near where he is being reassigned.

    I don’t have good eyes. Had I been born a hundred years ago, there would have been no help for me. Glasses can’t help me, so I’d have blind. I have to wear a special kind of contact lens, which wasn’t available in the days of Davey Crockett and Daniel Boone. But through the miracle […]
  • Hunters must be conservationists first - October 20, 2014
    As hunters, it’s our responsibility to take care of the critters we hunt, as well as those we don’t. We have to obey the game laws. Police ourselves to be sure others respect the wildlife.
