He said he hopes the change will help veterans and their families “take the next steps in adapting back to civilian life.”

The SUNY and CUNY systems usually require applicants to pay fees ranging from $50 to $65.

The governor also said several state landmarks would be lit red, white and blue for Veterans Day.
