Volunteers from the local community delivered about 450 turkeys to units at JBLM Nov. 23 during Operation Turkey Drop.
The JBLM Turkey Trot hosted nearly 700 runners during the annual event. Approximately 700 runners participate in the annual JBLM Turkey Trot, which started and ended 5K and 10K courses at the Family and Morale, Welfare and Recreation Festival Tent on Lewis Main. After the race, a total of 20 turkeys were awarded through a raffle.
While hunting opportunities are available on Joint Base Lewis-McChord, there seems to be confusion why certain training areas are closed at different times throughout the year. Additionally, there are rules of hunting that all hunters must learn before they become registered to come onto JBLM lands.
Recreation: Sounders Lanes at Colonel Joe Jackson Boulevard on McChord Field is hosting a special Saturday for $5 per game, including shoe rental, between 11 a.m. and noon; designed for service members to bring their children to the lanes. For more information, call 253-982-5954.
Roger Feller was just 8 years old when U.S. troops liberated his village, Perlé, Luxembourg, in September 1944. Roger recalls the story with vivid detail and overflowing enthusiasm, as though the events had occurred last week, not 71 years ago.
Greetings to the Soldiers and families of 7th Infantry Division and the Joint Base Lewis-McChord community. I continue to be impressed by Task Force BAYONET and its superb reputation across the Army largely because of your leadership, service and hard work.
During the month of November, observances to honor our nation’s Veterans take place throughout America. The meaning of these observances is dear to those who have donned the military uniforms of our nation, as well as the families who have supported them. Veterans Day commemorates all those who have served to defend the land of the free and for those who made the ultimate sacrifice fighting for our country and the preservation of freedom.
