About Us

The Bremerton Patriot has published each Friday since September 1999, and is dedicated to covering Kitsap County's largest city. With a state ferry terminal for the Seattle-Bremerton route, the community is a gateway to the Olympic Peninsula. The Bremerton Patriot provides comprehensive coverage of city government, local schools, the Navy, and the thriving downtown arts and entertainment community, among many other areas of civic life such as sports and recreation. The Patriot's sister newspaper, Veterans Life, is a monthly newspaper that reaches a unique and powerful segment of the market with news and information of specific interest to veterans: Feature stories, editorials, guest columnists, calendars, and lists of resources. Veterans Life is distributed throughout Kitsap County via more than 100 newsstand locations -- including high-traffic areas such Naval Base Kitsap and Washington State Ferries terminals -- and veterans organizations and veterans services offices. It is also available for home delivery by subscription. Visit Veterans Life online at KitsapVeteransLife.com.
