The German Defense Attache laid wreaths at the graves as a tribute to German prisoners of war at the Fort Lewis Cemetery on Joint Base Lewis-McChord Nov. 16. Three prisoners of war never left JBLM and are buried at the Fort Lewis Cemetery. Two of them died of natural causes, and there are reports that one committed suicide when the end of the war was declared, too afraid to face a return to Germany.

When I arrived at JBLM, the day was clear and I looked out my window at Mount Rainier. Its prominence was undeniable and it beckoned to be summited. I knew nothing about the preparation, effort and finances it would take to accomplish such a task, but I was immediately hooked with the thought, “I want to climb that mountain!”
