JACKSON, Wyo. (AP) — Grand Teton National Park and Yellowstone National Park are offering annual entrance passes granting free admission to military service members and their families.

The annual passes will become available on Saturday, Armed Forces Day, to active duty service members and their dependents. More than 2,000 national parks, wildlife refuges, national forests, and other public lands across the country also are issuing the passes.

Jonathan B. Jarvis is director of the National Park Service. He says places such as the Statue of Liberty and the Grand Canyon symbolize the nation that military service members make great sacrifices to protect.
