Need is now

Washington State is home to over 607,000 veterans, with the Pierce and Thruston county region ranked as the third largest veterans’ population in the country--- the largest on the west coast.

Joint Base Lewis McChord is expected to transition approximately 9000 service members out of the military each year for the next four years.

In addition, an estimated 13,000 veterans per year leaving the service have indicated a desire to locate or relocate to Washington through 2016.
