Eau Claire County giving out free park passes to disabled vets, POW's

Posted:

Eau Claire (WQOW) - Eau Claire County is giving out free park passes to disabled veterans and prisoners of war.

The county's parks and forest committee voted last month to give out $25 park passes to certain eligible disabled veterans and prisoners of war. The DNR already does this at all state parks. A disabled veteran, who has a state park pass, suggested the idea to the county. The pass would be good at all seven county parks, plus the tower ridge recreational area. 

"The committee and the county board feel that the sacrifices that these people have made for their country and for their fellow citizens, it's a small reward for these people who have given so much to the rest of us," says Mike Torud, the Eau Claire County Parks and Forest Director.

The passes are available at the Eau Claire County Veteran's Service Office. In order to be eligible, you must bring in your V.A. rating decision paperwork with you.
