– JBLM Commander Morgan addressed Yelm Chamber members
“Colonel Daniel S. Morgan, Joint Base Lewis-McChord commander, spoke to more than 40 local community and businesses leaders at the Yelm Chamber of Commerce [Feb. 14th] to communicate the bond between the base and the neighboring community.
‘I believe in trust, transparency, collaboration and collective responsibility,’ Morgan said. ‘That is what JBLM is and that is what is our relationship is.’
The monthly forum draws high-ranking public officials, civil services, and people from local and national businesses. They use the forum as a chance to network and listen to presentations from guest speakers.
Morgan provided information about the base, what makes up the core values of the installation, what makes JBLM unique from other bases around the country and how all of these factors connect with the Yelm community. He spent a large amount of time talking about what he called his ‘big rocks.'”
“For Line Critchfield, the Yelm Area Chamber of Commerce executive director, having a such a high-ranking JBLM official come to speak with the group highlighted how seriously JBLM regards the relationship between the two,” by Rio Fernandes, Northwest Guardian.
