Congressional Update from Sen. Patty Murray.

Helping a New Generation of Veterans Transition Home

Join Senator Murray as she discusses the unique opportunities and challenges that the South Sound and Washington state face as thousands of veterans continue to return to our region. The discussion will focus on the support the community can help offer returning veterans, the economic impact of their transition on our local economy, and the benefits of living and working in a military community.  Senator Murray will also discuss some of the biggest issues facing our nation’s veterans community as a whole, including the need to put our veterans back to work.

Committee on the Budget

Committee on Veterans' Affairs

There are three lots to choose from, and as you can see in the map below, one LOT G is right across the street on the same level as the Courtyard Marriott’s Commerce Street entrance (see symbol below). And two others A and B, up one level.

Again, simply take 15th street up the hill one block from Pacific Avenue to Commerce, and turn left in past the Marriott. The first lot you will come to is LOT G on your right.

If you find lot G to be full when you come to it (and it most often is not), simply continue along Commerce as shown on the map below, and turn right on Jefferson and right again on Broadway back into the other lots, A and B, both of which are also free. Then simply use the stairs to come down to Commerce, as these two lots are up one level.

Cut through the Commerce entrance of the Courtyard Marriott to Pacific Avenue and the Pacific Grill Events Center (see symbol below). And you are “home free.”
