Military Tags: Free seasonal tags are available to veterans and active military members. Remember to have proper military identification to receive your free tag(s). Veterans receive free tags (veteran only). Active military members, spouses and immediate children up to age 23 also are eligible to receive free tags. The veteran/military tags are available at: City Hall, the Route 52 Welcome Center, the 34th Street Information Center, the 46th Street Information Center and the Music Pier Welcome Center (see hours above).
For active: active military member, spouse – both with current military ID and immediate children (up to age 23).
For veteran: veteran only with current veteran ID. Active and veteran personnel may go to the beach without the physical tag; they just need to show proper ID. See above to obtain a physical tag.
Note: Unlike other veteran benefits, a beach tag does not transfer to a surviving spouse. All new recipients will be required to complete and sign a tracking form. Anyone who has received a military / veteran tag in the past needs only to show a driver’s license. The spouse and children of a deployed service member can receive their tags; they just need to show proper ID. However, they CANNOT pick up a tag for their deployed spouse.
