As a way of saying “thank you” to the country’s military, Brown Bear Car Wash offers free washes to all current or former members of the military on Veterans Day, Monday, Nov. 11.

The free “Beary Clean” washes will be offered at 26 tunnel wash locations, including the Brown Bear car wash in Kent at 1202 W. Meeker St., from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.

See brownbear.com for a list of all participating tunnel locations.

The offer operates on an honor system and 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.

Brown Bear will also donate $1 for each car washed on Veterans Day to support Puget Sound Honor Flight and its mission of transporting Western Washington war veterans to visit memorials in Washington, D.C. For more information visit pugetsoundhonorflight.org.

Brown Bear is a partner in Grace For Vets, an international program uniting the car wash industry each year by listing participating car washes that are honoring veterans with a free car wash on Veterans Day.
