Whether you just pulled up to the front gates at Joint Base Lewis-McChord or it's on the PCS horizon for you and yours, there are some essential things every new arrival at JBLM needs to know.
A number of large organizations on Joint Base Lewis-McChord are staffed almost entirely by volunteers and more hands are always needed.
Pierce County Library also values the opportunity to provide the large and constantly changing JBLM population a welcoming place to learn, grow and connect with the community.
According to a report released earlier in 2014 by the Bureau of Labor Statistics, about 62.6 million people volunteered through or for an organization at least once between September 2012 and September 2013.
The Performance Triad, which focuses on improving the activity, nutrition and sleep of soldiers, in order to promote their overall wellbeing and resiliency, began Sept. 9 at Joint Base Lewis-McChord.
Servicemembers on active duty and their dependents, as well as retirees, are eligible to utilize the JBLM tax Center, but Reservists and National Guardsmen can only do so if they are on Title 10 status.
