Maryland offers discounted outdoors fees to Purple Heart recipients!

Our armed forces veterans deserve many thanks for their service to protecting our country.  Now Maryland is extending their gratitude to veterans whom have received Purple Heart recognition.  This may not seem like much but anything done to benefit our veterans is a positive.  Often times they do not receive the kudos they should for putting their lives on the line to keep our country free and safe.  Maryland already offers the discounted programs to other military affilitations.  For those that qualify, the discount is up to 50% off hunting and fishing licenses.  For more information on this program, as well as the qualifications and application process keep reading!  Way to go Maryland for your continued support of our armed forces veterans.

“Any Maryland veteran who has received a Purple Heart for injuries sustained defending our nation now qualifies for a 50 percent discount on Maryland hunting and fishing licenses. The new discounted rate went into effect July 1, 2017.”

“Purple Heart recipients will join disabled veterans and former prisoners of war along with current members of the U.S. military who can receive special pricing for Maryland licenses, permits and stamps.”
