                                        PURPOSE OF THE BILL
                    The purpose of H.R. 2615 is to authorize the exchange of certain

                  of Foreign Wars.
                               BACKGROUND AND NEED FOR LEGISLATION
                    The Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 5699, in Ocean Springs, Mis-
                    sissippi, owns an approximately 3.3-acre lot adjacent to Gulf Is-
                  lands National Seashore's Davis Bayou Area. The Post's property
                  is essentially landlocked, with the only access via a one-lane dirt
                  road across National Park Service (NPS) property. Under a pre-
                  vious informal agreement with the National Seashore, the NPS al-
                  lowed the Post to construct and maintain the access road, but no
                  right-of-way or special use permit was issued for it.
                    In 2015, the Post approached NPS with a proposal to exchange
                  2.16 acres of undeveloped land adjacent to the NPS land at the
