As a way of saying “thank you” to military members, Brown Bear Car Wash announced it will offer free car washes to all current or former members of the military on Veterans Day — Friday, Nov. 11.

The free “Bear Essentials” washes will be offered at Brown Bear’s 22 tunnel wash locations from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.

The offer operates on an honor system — no verification or documentation is required.

Drivers should identify themselves as a current or former member of the military to the wash attendant upon arrival.

The Federal Way Brown Bear is located at 34007 Hoyt Road SW. Visit www.brownbear.com for a list of Brown Bear’s 22 automated tunnel wash locations.

Brown Bear will also donate $1 for every car washed on Veterans Day to Puget Sound Honor Flight.

For the past two years, Brown Bear has donated more than $18,400 to support Honor Flight’s mission of transporting Western Washington war veterans to visit memorials in Washington, D.C.
