Col. Charles Hodges, the commander of Joint Base Lewis-McChord, will be the keynote speaker at a 2-and-a-half-hour forum in Tacoma Thursday, Nov. 14 about  the challenges facing the military base and the region.

Hodges' 30-minute talk is titled, "Realization: Local impacts of the sequestration and the draw down."

After Hodges' speech, a panel that includes city council members from Lakewood and Lacey and a regional director will discus solutions to I-5 traffic through JBLM, which is often in gridlock at peak commuter times.
