The 2014 Washington State Fair celebrates the U.S. armed forces by hosting its annual Military Monday Sept. 8 and 15. Free gate admission is offered to all active, reserve, and retired military and National Guard and their dependents, plus disabled veterans, when each shows valid military ID at any gate. March over to the traveling dental office exhibit, where Joint Base Lewis McChord gives Fair guests insight into toothache relief and other dental issues when troops are deployed. This display is staged to look like dental offices taken to war zones. They will also perform demonstrations at 3:00, 5:00 and 7:00 p.m. with a four-cell move team in riot gear against an aggressor. The action will capture the attention of all who attend. Several non-profit organizations related to the military will have booths at Military Appreciation Days. The Tacoma Vet Center, Rally Point 16, Washington Department of Veterans Affairs and Adopt-A-US-Soldier will have booths inside the Gold Gate near the fountain, next to the traveling dental office. Hobby Hall is showing their stars and stripes with their staged recruitment office and Vietnam War memorabilia display, open for the duration of the Fair. Memorabilia will include military nurse uniforms, a military Jeep and more. Do the hoo-ah!
