Military Fee Waiver
The purpose of this memorandum is to confirm the continuation of our current policy to
waive day use fees for active service military personnel and their dependants and to waive
camping fees for those on mid or post deployment (reintegration) leave to support Overseas
Contingency Operations (OCO).
2. We will continue to accept the new America the
Beautiful Interagency Annual Pass for Military personnel at Corps managed recreation areas
as proof of eligibility for free day use, and when leave orders to support Overseas
Contingency Operations are presented, for free camping. Our intent is to recognize the
selfless service of members of the U.S. military to our nation and the world.
waiver information and details can be found at website http://c
4. State, local, and
other managing entities of recreation areas located on Corps lands are encouraged, but not
required to comply with this waiver of fees in the areas they manage.
5. The point of
contact for the recreation use fee program is Mr. Pep Persio, Senior Policy Advisor for
Recreation Programs, (202) 761-0036, firstname.lastname@example.org.
