Ferries to honor veterans

At 11:11 a.m. on Veterans Day, Nov. 11, Washington State Ferries will observe two minutes of silence to recognize the bravery and sacrifice of the men and women who have served in the United States Armed Forces.

Following the moment of silence, all operating vessels will sound their whistles to salute all former military personnel, many of whom work for WSF or ride the boats each day.

In addition, on Friday, Nov. 9, through Monday, Nov. 12, WSF will fly the POW/MIA flag on all operating vessels. Several WSF routes connect military facilities and communities throughout Puget Sound.

“Recognizing the nearly 600,000 veterans, 60,000 active duty, 19,000 reservists and their family members that call Washington state home is important to us,” said Ferry System Assistant Secretary Amy Scarton. “Their sacrifice and dedication deserve our special thanks for their service to this nation.”

Onboard galley vendor Centerplate will also be honoring former and current military personnel with a fleet-wide 10-percent discount on all food and beverages on Sunday, Nov. 11, with proper identification.

Washington State Ferries, a division of the Washington State Department of Transportation, is the largest ferry system in the U.S. and safely and efficiently carries nearly 25 million people a year through some of the most majestic scenery in the world.
