As mentioned in the Lakewood Chamber Military Affairs Committee, the Lakewood Subchapter of the AUSA, and many other meetings I’ve visited the past week – not all the JBLM soldiers are back from war. The 504th MP Battalion, part of the Joint Base Lewis McChord 42nd MP Brigade is in the middle of the fight in Kandehar right now – one of the critical battles to defeat the Al Qaeda / Taliban insurgency in Afghanistan. I would love for the Lakewood community to remember them this holiday season. Let’s all pray for their success and safe return. If you would like to also send a card, letter or care package, please do so through their battalion chaplain. Address: CHAP Sterling, KAF, HHD, 504 MP BN, APO AE 09355.
