Lakewood Subchapter of the Association of the United States Army

July 15, 2010

The 4th Stryker Brigade is coming home! You may have heard 17,000 soldiers from Joint Base Lewis McChord (JBLM) are returning from the War over the summer months. The JBLM commanding general has assigned the 4rd Stryker Brigade to the city of Lakewood as a community connector unit. There are approximately 5,000 soldiers in this brigade; yes, 5,000!

Recently, the Association of the United States Army’s Fort Lewis Chapter established a Lakewood Subchapter to provide long term financial and welfare support to the 4rd Stryker Brigade. The Lakewood Subchapter currently has the task of raising $50,000 for an upcoming “Welcome Home Bar-B-Q” event, which is scheduled for early October. We need everyone’s help to welcome our hometown heroes home! If each business contributes $1,000 or more, just think how much quicker we can achieve the $50,000 goal!

We sincerely hope you’ll help us with this fundraising. This is a Win-Win opportunity for all of us. The Association of the United States Army is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. Therefore, your contributions are tax deductible. If you have any questions or require more information, please contact Carlene Joseph at (253)312-9279.

We appreciate your consideration!
