2 Joint Base Lewis-McChord
Joint Base Lewis-McChord Primary West Coast Force Generation Installation Facts and Figures: Joint Base Lewis-McChord Total Military (Active and Reserve) 42,153 Family Members 62,464 Civilian and Contract Employees 13,973 Retirees served by the base 54,000 Total acreage 414,000 JBLM Army growth since 2003 (military) 17,117 JBLM Payroll (2009) $3.7B (2009) 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 Major Missions Air Force 62 Airlift Wing 446th Airlift Wing (Reserve) Western Air Defense Sector (WADS) - primary mission is ―Guarding America’s Skies. This 24/7 guardian role involves the use of radar and communications systems to monitor air traffic from the Mississippi River west to the Pacific Ocean, and from the Canadian border south to the Mexican border. 22nd Special Tactics Squadron (AFSOC) 262nd Information Warfare Aggressor Squadron 361st Recruiting Squadron Army I Corps Western Regional Medical Command (WRMC) Madigan Army Medical Command (MAMC) All MSCs and ACOMs represented by O-6s Other data is statistical Units 30+ major units Army, Air Force, Navy, Marine Corps

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

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 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 Roy Yelm Rainier JBLM Tumwater Olympia Lacey DuPont Parkland/ Spanaway Steilacoom University Place Lakewood Puyallup Tacoma Gig Harbor Seattle/ King County Nisqually Indian Tribe Military Equal Opportunity (MEO), Family Advocacy Program (FAP) Conflicting Service Policies: Fix: Train to implement Best Practices Traffic Congestion: Fix: Bypass highway Issue: Funding Delays in CIVPERS resourcing and hiring processes

6 Way Ahead, post-FOC 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 Identify efficiencies as we learn, but sustain effective support to our Joint Operational Force
