2 Joint Base Lewis-McChord Primary West Coast Force Generation Installation Facts and Figures: Joint Base Lewis-McChordTotal Military (Active and Reserve)42,153 Family Members62,464 Civilian and Contract Employees13,973 Retirees served by the base54,000 Total acreage414,000 JBLM Army growth since 2003 (military)17,117 JBLM Payroll (2009)$3.7B (2009) Units 30+ major units Army, Air Force, Navy, Marine Corps 2 National Power Projection Platform Worldwide deployments and missions Air (C-17, SeaTac International Air Port), ground and sea hubs in Tacoma, Olympia, Seattle First rate maneuver training areas including Yakima Training Center Active and Reserve unit mobilizations and demobilizations

3 JBLM – A Unique Installation Operational Mission No other Joint Base sustains an operational force of this range and size I Corps, three of six AC SBCTs, and over 20 Brigade -sized operational units 62d AW (C-17), Air Mobility Command’s West Coast Strategic lift force with 446 th AW (USAFR) Prime Nuclear Airlift Force (PNAF) Mission Western Air Defense Sector One of 12 BRAC-directed Joint Bases, largest of the two Army-led Support Mission Only West Coast Primary Force Generation Installation (pFGI) and Enduring Moblization Center (eMTC) Geography Proximity and sheer size makes JBLM’s success a unique strategic asset Total Mil/Civ population (48,000+) Nation’s 13 th Largest Media Market Astride primary West Coast Arterial, in one of the Nation’s Fastest Growing Metropolitan Areas One of Only Two Army-led Joint Bases Warrior Transition Unit DISA West Coast Communications Node Yakima Training Center FUSA annual RC mob/demob Leschi Town / Multiple Sim Facilities No other Joint Base has as large or varied mix of operational, training, and support units & missions Every Army ACOM represented by an O-6 Command AMC Ops (Rodeo & Deep Freeze) Strategic partnership with Republic of Korea and Japan Deployable Joint Task Force Headquarters Madigan Army Medical Center- one of only three designated Level 2 trauma centers throughout the U.S. Medical Command Warrior Forge - Army's only site for Reserve Officer Training Advanced Camp Embedded in a metropolitan area of 3 million people. Instead of one community with which we maintain relationships, we have dozens. Special Operations, Aviation, Medical, and Fire Support Commands TRANSCOM mission spt by our Aerial Port capability PACOM mission spt by I CORPS

4 4 Benefits of Joint Basing Forged a single Installation Support organization without negatively impacting the operational force supporting the war effort Provides a single, unified source of Installation Support for the Warfighter Allows the US Military in South Puget Sound to communicate as a single voice with local communities Sets conditions for long-term efficiencies and enduring savings. Examples: – Improved Fire & Emergency Services response times – Accelerated development of a JBLM Comprehensive Emergency Management Plan – Low-cost implementation of a Virtual Local Area Network (VLAN) to connect Army, Air Force Installation Support staff; actual cost of $300K versus an estimated $6M

5 Big Issues 5 Conflicting Service policies hamper JB programs (i.e., FAP, MEO, etc.) Services and OSD need to establish (and resource) a Joint Family Covenant Traffic Congestion along the I-5 Corridor Traffic Congestion On-Base Delays in CIVPERS resourcing and hiring processes Roy Yelm Rainier JBLM Tumwater Olympia Lacey DuPont Parkland/ Spanaway Steilacoom University Place Lakewood Puyallup Tacoma Gig Harbor Seattle/ King County Nisqually Indian Tribe

6  RESOURCING: Confirm and refine costing and resourcing model  Resolve Pre-existing Installation Support Shortfalls  Adjust Army resourcing systems for JB construct (e.g. BRM manual adjustments, COLS manning, and resourcing)  Ensure transparency of USAF Total Obligation Authority (TOA) and non-IMCOM funding  Publish funding guidance to build an execution strategy for COLS resourcing  POLICY: Promote “Best Practice” approach to Installation Management  Leverage JBLM solutions to facilitate Service-wide efficiencies  Accommodate Service-unique programs, but advocate for DoD-common solutions where appropriate  Refine JBLM organization (manpower analysis, objective structure)  Refine JBLM Command and Control approach Way Ahead, post-FOC 6 Identify efficiencies as we learn, but sustain effective support to our Joint Operational Force
