Delaware’s Iraqi War Vets Offered Free State Park Passes, Hunting and Fishing Licenses

October 28, 2004

The Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control today announced it is offering free one-year state park passes and fishing and hunting licenses to Delaware’s Operation Iraqi Freedom or Operation Enduring Freedom veterans.

HB 326, which was initiated by the General Assembly and passed in June, authorizes the Division of Parks and Recreation and the Division of Fish and Wildlife to issue, respectively, a free annual park pass, hunting license and/or fishing license to any resident who served in Iraq for at
least 90 consecutive days and has been honorably discharged.

“The men and women in our armed forces have made tremendous sacrifices, risking their lives while being separated from their families,” said Secretary John A. Hughes. “DNREC is pleased to help the General Assembly express the State’s gratitude for their service by offering them some
much-needed relaxation and enjoyment.”

Veterans interested in taking advantage of the offer can contact the Division of Parks and Recreation’s Office of Business Services at 302-739-4702 or the Division of Fish and Wildlife’s Coordination Section at 302-739-5296.
