For Our Post 142 Family

From time to time, knowledge of events external to our post, but of potential interest to Family members, comes along.  These postings are, admittedly, influenced by personal choice, but are offered only for members' consideration.  With that stipulation in mind, here are some offerings:




Update: March 23, 2021

While Post 142's activities for members and guests are on temporary hiatus, our fellow veteran's organizations are contining their activities.

Both the Disabled American Veterans' (DAV) and the Marine Corps League's (MCL) primary missions benefit U.S. American veterans, and both organizations' members are totally dedicated to assisting those men and women veterans who have served this nation so well. Post 142 is proud of it's affiliation with both of these fine groups.

Through my local American Legion Post 464, I just recieved an Email that stated effective this past Veteran's Day (2020):

"Gold Star families and United States veterans can enjoy free entry to national parks for life.

The Interior Department approved a push led by two Maine lawmakers, Independent Sen. Angus King and Democratic Rep. Jared Golden, who viewed the efforts as a way to honor families of military members who died during their service."

"Making our national parks and public lands open to these Americans free of charge is a small but meaningful way to express our gratitude for their sacrifices," Golden said.

The department says the fees will be waved for Gold Star family members and veterans who are now able to access freely almost 2,000 public locations across 400 million acres of land. A Gold Star family member includes the immediate family of a soldier who died while in combat.

Who is eligible to gain free entrance as a veteran?

For purposes of this program, a veteran is identified as an individual who has served in the U.S. Armed Forces, including the National Guard and Reserves, and is able to present one of the following forms of identification when entering a national park:

Department of Defense Identification Card (CAC Card)

Veteran Health Identification Card (VHIC)

Veteran ID Card

Veterans designation on a state-issued U.S. driver’s license or identification card
