As a way of saying “thank you” to our military, Brown Bear Car Wash will offer free “Bear Essentials” tunnel car washes to all current or former
members of the military on Veterans Day, (Monday, November 11).
Brown Bear President Vic Odermat said the offer will operate 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.

“The event is our way of demonstrating appreciation for those who currently serve our country and have made sacrifices on behalf of all of us,” said Odermat, who founded the company in 1957 and is a proud US Marine veteran. “It reflects our bond to the communities we serve, including a large armed services presence here.”
The family-owned company, through its parent company, Car Wash Enterprises, Inc., owns and operates a total of 42 car wash facilities in Washington State as well as a large network of gas stations and convenience stores. It is one of the largest privately held car wash chains in the U.S. and is widely recognized within the industry as being a leader in the environmental movement.
