Free Veterans Beach Tags/Active Military
The Avalon Borough Council approved an ordinance that results in free beach tags being offered to all veterans of the United States Military. This ordinance went into effect in advance of the 2014 beach season, and continues to be in effect in the Borough.
The new law allows beach communities in New Jersey to offer reduced price or free beach tags to any individual who has served in any of the Armed Forces of the United States who were discharged or released under conditions other than dishonorable and who either have served at least 90 days in active duty or have been discharged or released from active duty by reason of a service-incurred injury or disability.
Avalon will make the free beach tags available at the Avalon Beach Tag Booth located next to Avalon Community Hall at 30th Street and the beach. Veterans will simply need to show appropriate documentation to receive complimentary beach access for the 2023 beach season in Avalon. Appropriate documentation includes: DD-214, or any of the following:
–Cape May County Veterans card, issued by the county
-Active/retired/reserved military identification card
–American Legion card
–Vietnam Veterans of America card
–Disabled Veterans of America card
–Marine Corps League card
Avalon continues its practice of offering free beach access to active members of the United States Armed Forces and their immediate family members. Please note that for the 2018 beach season, veterans and active military mentioned above may simply show these forms of identification to a beach tag checker in lieu of obtaining a beach tag.
