An employee at Indiana Dunes deserves the thanks for a new policy at all of our National Parks.

All military veterans have free lifetime passes to the parks, thanks to a suggestion from Indiana Dunes Fee Program Supervisor Ryan Koepke.

The Northwest Indiana Times reports that he asked the Secretary of the Interior about the idea during a visit in August. The Secretary then passed the suggestion on to Congress that all veterans should be added to a bill that allows Gold Star families of military personnel who were killed in combat the chance to visit federal parklands free of charge.
