All NYS veterans with disabilities are eligible for a Liberty Lifetime Free Pass
If you are a veteran, thank you very much for your service and dedication to your fellow human beings. There are apparently very few ways people can not only say thank you, but also follow up with something else.
New York State has made sure that disabled veterans who reside in the Empire State can also receive this other benefit free of charge, as a thank you for your service.
