Massage for the Military Day


Four weeks before her husband’s deployment, Danielle Leavitt enjoys a free facial by Anna Welch during Massage Envy’s second annual “Massage for the Military Day”, in Tacoma, July 23, 2012. In partnership with the USO Puget Sound Area, twenty one Massage Envy franchises planned to provide an estimated 1,000 free one-hour massage sessions for active-duty military and their spouses. Danielle Leavitt, who is expecting her third child in a week, said “It helps take our minds off the stress that the military deployments can bring. And it’s nice to feel appreciated.” Leavitt, who chose a facial over a massage, said her husband was at home in Yelm watching their two sons.(Janet Jensen/Staff photographer)
