Benefits for Veterans in Indiana-Golden Hoosier Passport
Through Indiana’s Department of Veterans Affairs, residents who served in the armed forces receive benefits that help to lower their expenses and receive care and educational assistance. Spouses and children of veterans who served on active duty and as reservists in the military qualify to receive some of these benefits as well.
Periodically, I will share a benefit available to you much like the one I’m about to share.
If a veteran served in a war or during peacetime and received an honorable discharge, he’s eligible for a Golden Hoosier Passport. This passport gives him access to state-owned parks, historic sites, reservoirs and other natural resource facilities free of charge. Golden Hoosier Passports are effective for one year from the date of issuance. The Indiana Department of Natural Resources issues the passports.
