I had never given this any thought until I got the following e-mail this morning.
Wow. U.S. Veterans do NOT automatically have unlimited FREE Admittance to all our National Parks?
Yes, I know that the National Parks need every cent they can get BUT wouldn’t this — i.e., FREE admittance for all veterans — be a GRAND gesture.
I know that Deanna has permanent free access to all the parks because she is officially disabled. So IF we can afford to do this for the disabled, and I know there are other categories that also get free or reduced access, why NOT the veterans. It would appear to be the LEAST we could do.
Look at the millions, if NOT Billions, being spent by the super rich to influence the elections. Couldn’t a few of them band together and give the National Parks $100 M a year (or more) and say this is to provide FREE access to all the veterans.
IF you like this idea run with it.
Here is the e-mail I received this morning — BECAUSE I am registered with ‘Grand Canyon National Park Lodges‘ as somebody who has stayed at the Park.
Just in case anybody was wondering or was coming just for a balloon ride. Just a heads up. I got an e-mail about the weather-related cancellation on Friday evening. The Open House, of course, is still on, rain or shine.
Here is a message from Don Carron,
WinnAero Program Director & ACE Academy Director
Some of the proceeds from this Open House are going to WinnAero to help fund ACE Academy scholarships. At this time, we are unable to honor all requests for scholarships. Your participation and a successful event will help us raise the funds we need to help everyone who asked for tuition assistance.
WinnAero will be conducting a variety of activities for children. When you arrive, look for me in that area. Let me know you are on site, I’d love a chance to meet you before ACE Academy. If you have the time, you can help out with some of the activities. If you’re an ACE Alumnus, please wear your ACE shirt. I hope to see you all at the Laconia Airport 2nd Annual Open House.
