National parks, battlefields and forests free Veterans Day
Entrance to national parks, historic battlefields and forests is free on Wednesday, and not just for servicemen and women. This year, the National Park Service is waiving admission fees for all visitors in honor of Veterans Day. Many of the sites, including Valley Forge in Pennsylvania, have special events planned to mark the occasion.

If you're a veteran and need some gear to take with you, Cabela's will be giving you their employee discount next Thursday and Friday.

This sounds a bit like Illinois under Blago.

Want to listen to your favorite national park at home?
Peals of thunder, gently falling rains, the slap of surf against the rocky shores of Acadia National Park, even the roaring of a geyser. These are some of the sounds of nature that have been pulled into musical compositions that revolve around national parks. Produced by Robb Klein, an audio engineer, and Randy Petersen, a musician, these CDs capture the moods of nature found in the parks, and can spur fond memories of your visits while you're far from the parks.

You can find them along with samples of the music here
