It seems that the last Monday of May is somehow right around the corner, (I’m sorry but who allowed time to fly by like this?) and although this unofficial summer kick off can mean vacations and BBQs for some, it is important to set aside some time to not only recognize fallen soldiers, but also the living that continue to selflessly defend our country. Pierce County is the home to the service members of JBLM and their family members, and the presence of military personnel does not go unrecognized. Tacoma and Pierce County make sure to show that appreciation by offering deals and discounts exclusive for the men and women committed to serving this great nation.
That said, we’ve compiled a list of several discounts that Tacoma will be offering in order to pay tribute to these selfless soldiers.
