TACOMA, Wash. (Feb. 26, 2013) – There’s no such thing as a free lunch….Wrong. For active military and first responders, lunch is on LeMay – America’s Car Museum (ACM) throughout March. The museum will treat active law enforcement, military personnel and emergency medical technicians (EMTs) to one free meal at its in-house Classics Café with the purchase of an ACM admission ticket.

“These brave folks are everyday heroes and play a critical role in protecting our neighborhoods and country,” said Scot Keller, ACM chief marketing and communications officer. “More than 40,000 U.S. military residents along with thousands of first responders make up our Tacoma community. This is our way of saying thank you to all these courageous men and women who we owe a great debt.”

The complimentary meal includes a Classics Café entrée, chips and drink, and will be available to active service members and first responders who present a valid ID or occupation badge.
