Joint Base Lewis-McChord units will support more than 20 Veterans Day events hosted by schools, veterans groups and other organizations in local communities from Nov. 3-11. Various units across the base are providing guest speakers, equipment displays, musicians and color guards.
Each year, JBLM leaders make Veterans Day a priority as a way to say thank you to people and communities who do so much throughout the year to support service members and their families.
The following is a list of events our service members will take part in surrounding Veterans Day. Many of these events are open to the public; however, some are not. Those wishing to attend should contact the organization hosting the specific event for more information.
