On July 15th and 16th, Joint Base Lewis McChord hosted JAWE, a Joint Airshow and Warrior Expo. This event was the first of its kind hosted on the base in seven years and was an important opportunity to connect our local military with the surrounding South Sound community. Military service members and their families are a significant and vital portion of our local population, and JBLM plays a major role in our regional economy. Events like these showcase the skill and dedication of our local service members and give citizens the chance to interact, understand, and appreciate our local military community.
Our Chamber CEO/President Andrea Reay was honored to have been invited to attend this airshow and expo. While there, she was able to view demonstrations from Team McChord’s own 22nd Special Tactics Squadron, the C-17 West Coast Demonstration Team, and the U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds. It was also a great opportunity for networking and building partnerships with our service members and military leaders.
Thank you to JBLM for inviting our Chamber to participate in this landmark event! View photos below!
